The Book Of Camping and Woodcraft by Kephart, Horace

MY one aim in writing this little book is to make it of practical service to those who seek rest or sport in the wilderness, or whose business calls them thither. I have treated the matter of outfitting in some detail, not because elaborate outfits are usually desirable, for they are not, but because in town there is so much to pick and choose from. Thereafter, the body of the book is mainly given up to such shifts and expedients as are learned in the wilderness itself, where we have nothing to choose from but the raw materials that lie around us. As for camps situated within easy reach of towns or supply-posts, every one, I suppose, knows best how to gratify his own tastes in fitting them up, and prefers to use his own ingenuity rather than copy after others. Real woodcraft consists rather in knowing how to get along without the appliances of civilization than in adapting them to wildwood life. I am not advising anybody to travel with nothing but a gun and ammunition, a blanket, a frying-pan, and a tin cup; but it has been part of my object to show how the thing can be done, if necessary, without serious hardship.

    If this is a book meant to be read at home before a journey, and propitiates the Lares and Penates by keeping you home o' nights, if it's not in his book. This gives your pastime an air of thrift, it can be sort of useful but it's really unwieldy.

    The bottom photograph of Horace Kephart was taken by George Masa, a photographer and hiking companion. Though schooled as a librarian, he became the consummate outdoorsman while spending years in the Smokies, which he promoted for a national park. Those years in the woods taught Kephart much, and he, in turn, passed that education on in the form of a book, Camping and Woodcraft. 🙍
