    Here's one that got a lot of people started: http://www.amazon.com/Ed-Speers-Hamm.../dp/B004V3I79I

    I saw that one... I'm using these for an english class I'm taking now. I wrote a paper on hammock camping a few weeks back, but now we're revising the paper and I need to have a few more non internet sources... but the paper is due in a week and I don't have time to wait for a "real" book so I'm looking for iPad or Kindle ebooks.

    To my knowledge, Ed Speer's Hammock Camping and Derek Hansen's The Ultimate Hang are the only ones out there. There may be others, but I can't recall ever hearing of any....

    Good luck.

    you may be able to find something in a survival guide about hammocks and the benfits that they offer. not sure if that helps but they talked about hammocks from a parachute when i went through SERE school.

    i just got done with my paper that's due next week. principles of learning, yuck! all about test preparation and test taking. I hate college right now LOL
