The Book of the Bivvy

 A Guide to bivouac skills and expeditions, The Book of The Bivvy is a half-and-half mix of how to do it and why to do it (or rather how not to do it, and why not to do it). Discussion of expeditions, both nice and heavy, interspersed with practical chapters on the technical background of breathable membrane, how small your kit may have to go on the road and the secrets of lightweight long distances. The book closes with a selection of bivvybag expeditions to initiate the unwary into the secrets.
Ronald's informative, humorous, instructive look at the world of bivouac is certainly the first and perhaps the last in this unexplored terrain. Throughout the book, Ronald shows that from 1900 to 1969 was the Middle Ages from the bivouac, how Diogenes (the Cynic) camped under branches and climbed the Eiger was only through improvised bivouac techniques.

The book concludes with a selection of bivvy bag expeditions to initiate the unwary into the secrets.
