Kephart's original how-to manual for the outdoors! This is the original handbook from the master of outdoors instruction. In this Legacy Edition premium reprint of the first version of Kephart's masterwork (in its final fifth edition printing), learn all of the essential, but often forgotten skills of classic camping and outdoors travel, including camping, camp cookery, clothing, hiking and wayfinding, outdoors gear and outfits, beating bugs and the elements, handling emergency situations, woods tools and axemanship, catching your dinner by hunting and fishing, and tanning skins and pelts. This first version of this book (in its final fifth edition, printed 1912) is the shorter, more concise publication compared to Kephart's later expansion of this work, called Camping and Woodcraft from 1917 (over 800 pages total sold as two volumes combined). Note: This printing is of the fifth edition of the first version (1912), not the first edition (1906). It has been expanded by the author from the previous four editions.

Heralded as the "bible of outdoorsmen" by hunters, campers, fishers, and crafters of all walks, Horace Kephart's perennially sought-after two-volume tome, Camping and Woodcraft, stands as an astounding testament to the vast depth and precision of the author's practical knowledge and profound love of life in the outdoors. A beacon of self-reliance with the intellectual appetite of the world's most accomplished scholars, Kephart spent his early years in voracious pursuit of knowledge as a precocious student, bibliophile, and librarian at such prestigious institutions as Yale University and the Saint Louis Mercantile, working as a freelance writer all the while. As he fell in love with the outdoors and the skills required to navigate them, Kephart grew proportionally dissatisfied with the daily monotony of life in academia, taking to the woods for days on end with increasing frequency before finally making the Great Smoky Mountains his permanent home. Based on the enormous collection of articles he penned for Field & Stream, Kephart's Camping and Woodcraft is an invaluable treasury of wisdom and advice collected by Kephart over years of experimentation and refinement. Back in print for a new generation of wilderness-loving campers and sportsmen, this high quality new edition is a tremendous resource for anyone who loves the outdoors. 2015 re-issues of both volumes are individually available in paperback and hardcover from Churchill & Dunn.
