2016 Reprint of 1908 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. This title continues to rank very high among the best sporting books of all time. A standard manual for campers and a veritable outdoor enthusiast's bible for over a century, the book reflects Horace Kephart's practical knowledge and covers, in depth, any problem that campers might confront.
Kephart lived in the Great Smoky Mountains and spent most of his time in the wild. Consequently, he became an expert on all aspects of camp life from living in a semi-permanent lean-to to traveling with only the bare essentials in a backpack. More than simply a hunting or fishing guide, Kephart's book covers a wide variety of subjects from how to dress game and fish to how to shoot accurately. Every chapter is filled with tips that remain useful even after one hundred years of improvements in equipment and technology. "All Scouts know Horace Kephart," began a story in the April, 1914,
Boys' Life magazine. "His Book of Camping and Woodcraft" is the pocket companion of pretty nearly everyone who likes to live in the open."
