Woodcraft and Camping
Woodcraft and Camping: The Great American Classic of Camping
Written at a time when woodlore and woodcraft were vital skills, and when America's wilderness regions offered a true opportunity for "roughing it," this book has remained a classic through three or four generations of readers. The author, George W. Sears, is best known as "Nessmuk", and if ever there was a Daniel Boone, this must have been the man! His knowledge of how to get on camping, hiking, and hunting trips-and of how to get out of such experiences- is unsurpassed.
No book has ever inspired so many readers to get out and try out-door living for themselves. Nessmuk is so appreciative of the pleasures and peace of mind that come from direct contact with nature that the appeal of the woods becomes almost irresistible as you read through his pages. A treasure-chest of useful, specific information, instructions, and suggestions on every aspect of woodcraft, his book is also an inspiration cannot fail to arouse genuine enthusiasm among Scouts, day-school students, young campers, and other youth groups. And adult readers find its appeal just as exciting.
