OK, this guy should know what he is talking about because he has won snowshoe races and was a national snowshoe champion, if that matters. I did learn a couple of hints. But after reading this book, I am very thankful that I can go out my kitchen door, put on my snowshoes and go for hours through the woods in pure enjoyment (and with my camera) and not concern myself about technicalities. I think snowshoeing should be fun.
