How do you learn about Trekking and 18th Century re-enacting?
Lots of good resources to get started. It is
best to read the more generic texts then refine your
persona based on the actual sources of your area. These are but a few (and I will be working
on this list as time permits). Note: The Author or Publisher's name is in italics.
