Favorite 2006 Outdoors Titles

Chicago Tribune reviewer Lew Freedman lists his favorite outdoors books of 2006, among them Howell Raines’s The One That Got Away, Russell Annabel’s Adventure Is In My Blood, The Last Expedition by Daniel Liebowitz and Charles Pearson, and Eric Newby’s memoir of traveling in Afghanistan: “A Short Walk in the Hindu Kush, by Eric Newby, is regarded as a classic of adventure travel literature. In 1956, Newby quit his career in fashion, and joined a British Foreign Service friend for a harsh trek and climb in Afghanistan. Newby is an understated, droll writer, with a thorough sense of self-deprecation.”
