Be at home in nature, all through the year, with the old-timey, folksy wisdom in this classic camping companion. First published in 1920, and never out-of-print, Daniel C. Beard’s The Book of Camp-Lore & Woodcraft is a guide from yesteryear for enjoying the great outdoors as its guest. Through the pages of this book, the author, a pioneer of the scouting movement, takes kids on a camping trip and instructs them in the art of building a fireplace and lighting a fire, designing a campsite, pitching a tent, cooking flapjacks, packing a trail horse, handling an axe, and much more. Daniel Carter Beard was an expert outdoorsman and founder of the scouting movement in America. His goal was to help kids to enjoy the out-of-doors as much as he did. In his books, filled with time-tested tips and knowledgeable advice, Beard helped preserve invaluable folkways that instill self-reliance and a deeper appreciation of nature―all while having a world of fun. This is truly a book for all ages―including adults.
