Being the largest Base Camp book in its 16 years of publication, there are numerous articles documenting the experiences of camp participants and the surrounding environments. Included are songs, stories, diary excerpts, and other creative works; bird, insect, botany, and wildlife reports; mountaineering and conservation notes; black and white photographs of campers and surrounding scenery; as well as a guide to the watershed south fork of Kings River, written by Oliver Kehrlein. Also included is a list of base camp participants.
