The Modern Backpacker's Handbook by Glenn Randall
The Backpacker's Handbook by Chris Townsend
Desolation Wilderness and the South Lake Tahoe Basin by Jeffrey P. Schaffer, Jeffery P. Schaffer; When I lived in California, Desolation Wilderness was my favorite place to go backpacking in the mountains. This book lists some great trails that I highly recommend.
Point Reyes : Secret Places and Magic Moments by Phil Arnot. Pt. Reyes is awsome. There are beatiful beachs, hills, views, and wildlife to be appreciated. If you plan carefully and well ahead, you backpack in 3-6 miles and camp 100 meters from the shore. The National Park service is good at limiting the number of backpackers so that the terrain does not get destroyed. Limantour beach is also a great Northern California style beach.
Hiking Peaks of the Northeast by Bruce Scofield. Last winter my brothers and I climbed Mt. Marcy, which is the highest point in N.Y. We camped in the snow one night, and then climbed the peak the next day with snow shoes. The wind and snow eliminated any visibility form the top, but it was a great feeling to get there anyway.
