The Wilderness Travel Course requires two texts, the WTC Student Handbook and Freedom of the Hills, 8th Edition. The Handbook takes you class by class through the topics in a condensed style. It also provides the homework assignments, along with lists and tips. It is presented in a sturdy 3-ring binder so that you can add handouts, trip notes, etc. as you wish, and it is included in the base price of registration.

WTC-Handbook-CoverThe second text is Freedom of the Hills, 8th Edition and is not included in the base price of the class, but we offer it for an extra $20 (or you may purchase elsewhere). This text is required reading, with pages selected appropriate for our class. A classic book, it is also an excellent foundation for your future backpacking and mountaineering activities.

You will receive both texts on first night of class.
