As you can imagine, walking across America is a logistical nightmare. I need not only to be fit to make it across, but I also need to be well read in all that it entails including safety, health, and general wilderness survival and backpacking knowledge.
I have recently ordered my first round of books in order to start getting well read on these various topics. The following is the book list I am currently pursuing that have been recommended to me by forums and friends:
-SAS Survival Handbook
-The Advanced Backpacker: A Handbook of Year Round, Long-Distance Hiking
-Fixing Your Feet: Prevention and Treatments for Athletes
-The Ultimate Hiker's Gear Guide: Tools and Techniques to Hit the Trail
-The Walk West: A Walk Across America 2
