As summer now becomes a fading memory and there is less time to go camping or hiking, as most of us return back to work. I thought it would be a good time to have a look at the best kindle camping and hiking books.

If we can’t find the time or the weather is too cold (except for the lucky ones who have the time or live in warmer climes or those hardier types) to get into the outdoors it presents a great opportunity to read about it. I think these books will inspire, make you laugh, educate and more. These books cover everything from thru-hiking, family camping, RVing to journeys of discovery. And before you know it the summer will be here and you’ll have the chance to live your own memories.

So our awards for the 10 best kindle camping and hiking books are:
