Camplore and Woodcraft; Author: Daniel Carter Beard
Camp, explore, hike, discover, learn woodcraft--get outdoors and be at home in nature all through the year! First published in 1920, and never out-of-print, Daniel C. Beard's The Book of Camp-Lore & Woodcraft is a classic of the great outdoors. The author, a pioneer of the scouting movement in America, takes kids on a camping trip and instructs them in the art of building a fireplace and lighting a fire, designing a campsite, pitching a tent, cooking flapjacks (not to mention muskrats and porcupines), packing a trail horse, and handling an axe. As with his American Boy's Handy Book and The Field and Forest Handy Book, Beard's books are still invaluable after 100 years.
