Book of the Week

Camping and Woodcraft, A handbook for vacation campers and for Travelers in the Wilderness. By Horace Kephart

Kephart published this book in 1906 and later a 2 volume set in 1916-17.

Even after almost 100 years of equipment improvements, Kephart book still contains the best advice I have ever read on living in a semi-primitive state. Kephart learned from Mountain Folks who were only a few generations from their pioneer ancestors. Anyone thinking about survival while staying comfortable should have this book in their personal library.
