1979 Worldwide Adventure TravelGuide.
Guidebook descriptions of the 3000 worldwide adventure trips open to public participation include highlights, itinerary, level of experience necessary, requirements, location, duration, dates, cost, and addresses and telephone numbers of the operating organizations. The guidebook is organized in four major sections and, within each section, into specific activities, each with an overview. The sections and activities are: Land Adventures (skiing, mountaineering, snowshoeing, dogsledding, trekking, wildlife safaris, nature trips, caravanning, horsepacking, cattle driving, caving, backpacking, archaeology/anthropology, overlanding, research expeditions, bicycle touring, wilderness survival); Air Adventures (ballooning, soaring, flying, hang gliding, parasailing/parachuting); Water Adventures (river rafting, canoeing, kayaking, sailing, windjamming, cruising, houseboating, research expeditions, nature trips); and Underwater Adventures (diving). Specific activities are organized geographically by continents and marine areas, then by countries, states, and provinces, where appropriate. There is a resource addendum for each activity which lists pertinent clubs, associations, rental agencies, and consultants. Indices organized by activity within geographical area and by trip operators provide for easy referencing. (SB)
