 Outdoor Play Volume II has over 260 pictures and video references documenting Steve’s places to go, trip preparations, routes, and narratives of each trip. Videos include Steve and friends crossing the fabled Knife Edge trail on Mt Katahdin, friends going through rapids on the Northern Forest Canoe Trail, sea-kayaking the Maine Island Trail, cross-country skiing down forest trails, zip-lining down Mt Sunapee and many more incentives to make the outdoors a key component of a daily life

“Outdoor Play Fun 4 4 Seasons Volumes I and II are Steve Priest at his best. The camaraderie and bonding that Steve has with his family and friends are apparent in all his writings. A perfect two volume follow-up to his previous best seller Outdoor Enthusiast, Never say “I Wish I Had…” – Linwood “The Loon” Parsons, Master Maine Guide.

“I am a regular follower of Steve Priest’s work. Outdoor Play Volume II brings Steve’s passion and experiences to life again. He shows us how the outdoors can have a profound impact on our personal and professional lives, and most importantly, the quality time we spend with our families. A must read for support and motivation to go outdoors for a healthy and enjoyable lifestyle.”

About the Book:

Master outdoorsman Steve Priest shares twenty plus years of personal encounters with injuries, healing, and prevention that come with an active physical life.

Injuries are something every outdoor enthusiast dreads. No one wants to think about them, but injuries are a fact of life. It is not a question of “if” but “when”. However the good news is that injuries can be prevented and overcome.

Outdoor activities such as running, cycling, hiking, skiing, triathlons, biathlons, XC skiing, and paddling, increase the possibility for a sports injury. Read to learn what you can do — as Steve has — to minimize the frequency for injury, and how to handle the injuries once they occur.

“Avoiding Injuries provides a unique perspective of outdoor injuries. Outdoor Steve’s point of view of injuries, remedies and prevention, gives a flavor for the health concerns that come up in an active physical life.”
