Outlandish is a sun-soaked starter manual to fueling your own epic. In this guide, the canyoneering wordsmith and adventurer Morgan Sjogren shows how to sleep in a car, build a fire, overcome disaster, reuse bacon grease, leave no trace, sundry tomatoes on a sun-blasted car hood, cook food on a hot engine block, and choose 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.
Outlandish is a gorgeous guide to a more adventurous life. Through her riveting personal stories and the book’s heart-aching photographs, Sjogren shares her advice and lessons learned from years exploring the desert Southwest while living out of her canary yellow Jeep Wrangler. Morgan shares dozens of recipes that draw from the places she’s been—Sedona, Bears Ears, Yosemite, Silverton, Utah—and help her share 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.
Outlandish is equal parts fuel for the body and food for the soul, a guide straight from the Utah canyon country and deserts of Arizona that shares lessons from a life lived in wilderness. Sjogren’s guide is exhilarating and will stoke your sense of adventure and tear down the excuses and obstacles that keep us from escaping reality, if only for a weekend.
