Nowadays, when you want to go camping there are so many devices, gadgets and equipment you can bring along to make the entire experience much easier. Don’t get us wrong, we love all that stuff, but just imagine for a second what was it like camping without them. Camping In The Old Style is a book that will tell you all there is to know about camping techniques in the old times.
The book is written by David Wescott, and this is the new and updated color edition of the book. In it, you’ll find a bunch of camping methods used for hundreds of years. It’s very practical because it covers so many things, from making and pitching a tent, starting a fire, all sorts of wood crafting, food preparation, canoeing and even great storytelling.
Besides the methods and techniques of the author, Camping In The Old Style contains the wisdom of well-known campers of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, people such as Daniel Carter Beard, Warren H. Miller, Ernest Thompson Seton, Horace Kephart, and Nessmuk.
