Tonight Santa Cruz-based writer Dan White presents an irreverent take on the history of Americans in the outdoors, the subject of his book, Under the Stars: How America Fell in Love with Camping (Holt). Having traveled from the Sierras to the Adirondacks and studied the work of outdoor enthusiasts such as Emerson, Muir and Juliette Gordon Low, he has put together an amazing array of stories. This book is just the thing to inspire you to grab your tent and hit the road. Dan White is also the author of The Cactus Eaters: How I Lost My Mind--and Almost Found Myself--on the Pacific Coast Trail.
