The Book of Camping & Woodcraft: A Guidebook For Those Who Travel In The
NOTE: This description is for the 2011 reprint with the green and black cover, NOT the 2012 reprint with the brown cover "published" by RareBooksClub.com. This 2011 edition is an EXACT reprint of the 1910 edition, and reproduces the original layout and illustrations perfectly. There IS NO gibberish or poorly OCR'd text in the one with the green and black cover. “Your thoroughbred camper likes not the attentions of a landlord, nor will he suffer himself to be rooted to the soil by cares of ownership or lease. It is not possession of the land, but of the landscape, that enjoys; and as for that, all the wild parts of the earth are his, by a title that carries with it no obligation but that he shall not desecrate nor lay them waste." H. Kephart Intended as the definitive pocket field guide for the turn of the 20th Century woodsman and camper, the The Book of Camping & Woodcraft was originally published in 1906. This particular "Heritage Edition" appears as it was on the second reprinting in 1910. In 1916, Kephart dramatically expanded the book into two volumes to include wagon camping and semi-permanent base camp construction. These are the equivalent of modern car camping - just a couple of notches down from a motel stay. The 1910 edition is the "purest" of all the editions of "Th...

Camping and Woodcraft: A Handbook for Vacation Campers and for Travelers in the Wilderness (2 Volumes in
Originally published in 1906 as one volume, Camping and Woodcraft was expanded into a two-volume edition in 1916-17. Camping and Woodcraft ranks sixth among the ten best-selling sporting books of all time. A standard manual for campers and a veritable outdoor enthusiast’s bible for over four decades, this book reflects Horace Kephart’s practical knowledge and covers, in depth, any problem that campers might confront.Kephart lived in the Great Smoky Mountains and spent most of his time in the wild. Consequently, he became an expert on all aspects of camp life from living in a semi-permanent lean-to to traveling with only the bare essentials in a backpack. More than simply a hunting or fishing guide, Kephart’s book covers a wide variety of subjects from how to dress game and fish to how to shoot accurately. Every chapter is filled with tips that remain useful even after fifty years of improvements in equipment and technology.Jim Casada, who has provided an informative introduction to this edition, is professor of history at Winthrop College. He has written numerous articles on sporting figures and outdoor literature and is editor-at-large for Sporting Classics and contributing editor for Fly Fishing Heritage.

Woodcraft and Camping
Writing under the pen name “Nessmuk,” George Washington Sears gained an audience while working for Field and Stream magazine; he eventually published Woodcraft and Camping in 1884, and this delightfully informative little booklet has never been out of print in the over 125 years since. Readers young and old can benefit from the insight of Sears, whose advice harkens back to a time before widespread electricity. For people in modern times, these survival techniques are rarely taught outside of scouting clubs, making the skills and practical applications taught in Woodcraft even more valuable for hikers, campers and hunters.

The Book of Camp-Lore and Woodcraft (Nonpareil
This is Godine's fourth "handy book" by Dan Beard, the founder of the American Scouting movement, who believed that having boys build things with their hands was not only a detriment to making mischief, but also the basis for building great lives. In this belief, Beard was indefatigable, and every Scout worth his merit badge was expected to read his classic tract on camp-lore and woodcraft, which included instructions on how to build a good fire, cook venison, prepare for a camping trip, and use an axe and a saw. When we published the first book in this series (The American Boy's Handy Book), we thought it might appeal to a few hundred aging Scouts who fondly remembered "the old days." How wrong we were! With over 600,000 copies in print, the book is still selling strong. As Beard directed in 1930, "So, Boys of the Open, throw aside your new rackets, your croquet mallets, and your boiled shirts. Pull on your buckskin leggings, give a war whoop and be what God intended you should be; healthy wholesome boys. This great Republic belongs to you and so does this book." To which we can only say, "Amen!"
