In this guide, the canyoneering wordsmith and ultrarunner Morgan Sjogren shows how outdoor adventure can become your lifestyle. Through her riveting personal stories, flavorful recipes, and the book's gotta-go-there photographs, Sjogren shares her advice and lessons learned from years exploring the desert Southwest while living out of her canary-yellow Jeep Wrangler. Outlandish is a gorgeous guide to a more adventurous life.
In Outlandish, Sjogren shows how to sleep better in a car, build a cooking fire, overcome calamity, repurpose bacon grease, leave no trace, sun-dry tomatoes on your car hood, cook food on a hot engine block, and select practical gear for your tailgate kitchen. Equipped with little more than Outlandish, a backpacking stove, a cooler, and a few staple foods, you can seek out your own adventures fueled by Sjogren's inspiring outdoor lifestyle as well as her favorite burritos, dandelion salads, campfire blondies, and prickly pear margaritas.
Sjogren offers up dozens of recipes that draw from the places she's been; Sedona, Bears Ears, Yosemite, Silverton, Utah, and help her tell intoxicating tales of exploration and mishap. There are taco recipes remembered from the highest mountain in Mexico and 50 Shades of Burritos, with flavors taken from around the Four Corners.
