I know "lit" has a vague contemporary meaning, but I'm talking about literature. I recently posed a question about what other's favorite musical artists are; now I'm wanting to know, is there any literature (short stories, novels, non-fiction) that fans the flame of your zeal for the outdoors? It seems that I can't always get outside when I want to, but the right book could take me on a journey or deepen my passion to explore to the point that I have no choice but to trek somewhere. Any help is appreciated!
