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 II 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 II – Woodcraft, Kephart provides detailed instruction on making your way in the wilderness and the lore of the woods. This includes nature lore and how to “read” nature and the various signs it shows, how to use trail blazes, how to sketch maps, types of backpacks, proper hiking technique for wilderness travel, marksmanship, woods tools and axemanship, log cabin building, knots, hitches, and rope, how to skin and dress trophy game, cave exploration, bee hunting, edible plants, living off the land, and how to handle accidents and emergencies.
This handbook was originally published in two volumes due to its size (see Camping And Woodcraft – Volume I – Camping). Volume I – Camping contains valuable instruction and advice on camping equipment, setting up camp, and camp cookery. 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 II 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!
