The Deluxe Masterpiece on Outdoors Living, Bushcraft, and Wilderness Travel!
This deluxe, unabridged reprint Legacy Edition of Horace Kephart’s 1916 Camping And Woodcraft – Volume I served as THE standard for outdoors adventure for many decades after it was published, and continues that legacy today with its timeless knowledge it contains! First published in 1916, this is an expanded version of Kephart’s original 1906 work (The Book of Camping and Woodcraft Original Edition). This deluxe expanded version provides hundreds of additional pages of insights, tricks, tips, and skills instruction for thriving in camp and in the wilderness.
In Volume I – Camping, Kephart provides detailed instruction on camping, camp equipment, and outdoor life. This includes setting up your camping gear and outfit, tents, camp equipment, bedding, clothing, how to make your camp, camp fire making, how to dress game and fish, and many old-time recipes perfect for the camp kitchen. Enjoy dozens of vintage line-art illustrations within the book as well, especially in the sections on tents and camp equipment!
This handbook was originally published in two volumes due to its size (see Camping And Woodcraft – Volume II – Woodcraft). Volume II – Woodcraft contains instruction and advice on travel in the outdoors, nature lore, navigation skills, conquering the biting and stinging pests of the woods, emergencies, knots, and other necessary skills. This Doublebit Press Legacy Edition continues with that tradition by presenting the original volumes in their exact form as they were published by the now-defunct Outing Publishing Company. To have a complete set, readers will need to purchase Volume II as well.
Enjoy your copy of Camping And Woodcraft – Volume I for its historical record of the earliest days of recreational camping. Some material, of course, is past its time. However, most of the material is timeless! Perhaps you may even learn an old skill or two.
This book makes a perfect gift for camping enthusiasts, outsoorspeople, campers, hunters, bushcrafters, scouts, and historians. This book represents the rich history of the camping tradition, and belongs on the bookshelf of every outdoors enthusiast!
