About us and disclaimers

Le 16 décembre 2005, par James,

This site presents articles and discussions on outdoors matters. It has no commercial activity of any kind, and is only there to propagate information, and allow interactions between people which share the same passions.

It is animated by benevolent people, and the result is a common effort from a lot of them, in the simple spirit of sharing knowledge.

Outdoors-Magazine.com is Free in many ways. Free from the money scheme, Free to be what you want it to be, Free from advertising, Free from marketing.

We believe knowledge should be free, and this is what we provide. in opposite to commercial products we also think that free does not mean low quality, so we also try to provide good and accurate information, and count on YOU to correct us when you think we are wrong.

This site is composed from two parts : the magazine (here) and the bulletin board. Both parts have different rules.

Anybody can participate to the life of the site, provided the rules here stated are respected.


So please do not send email asking for the price of this or this, we cannot answer.

We also do not know were to find such or such item in such country, we cannot answer.

We do not sell anything. We also do not buy anything.

We are under a .com domain because the .net domain was already taken.

We are independent and free of marketing, and proud of it !

I’m a nature artist. A nonprofit I founded has reprinted several wilderness classics, most of them originally published in the 1930 and 1940s (Sleeping Island, True North, A Death on the Barrens, Black Spruce Journals, Forest Under My Fingernails).

Is it appropriate for us to post reviews or summaries of these books on your site ? They are sold through our own website, herondance.com, Ingram, bookstores, outdoor outfitters, etc.

Yes, reviews are appropriate, as long as they stay reasonably objective and do not turn into advertising.

Best regards..
