Synopsis: In the second edition of this successful textbook, Ibrahim and Cordes updated and elaborated on the many concepts and data presented in the first edition. The book is divided into three parts, containing sixteen chapters, four appendices and two indexes. Part One discusses the foundation and emergence of outdoor recreation, its spiritual aspects and the pioneers who paved the way for its growth and expansion. This followed by the psychological, social and economic factors that affect and are affected by outdoor recreation. Part Two discusses their availability and utilisation by the public on the federal, state, regional, and local levels. Next, is a discussion on the personal, private, semi-public, industrial and commercial resources in outdoor recreation. Part Three presents the basic management policies and the important procedures followed in the administration of the country's natural resources. Adventures on land, snow, white-water rivers, the ocean, in the air and many others are presented. How to protect the fragile ecosystem comes in the final chapter.

The book ends with four appendixes listing federal and state agencies as well as organisations dealing with outdoor recreation along the related federal laws. A name and a subject index are provided.
