Camping in the Old Style

( 0 Reviews )

Back before the days of RVs,  nylon sleeping bags, and all the other modern camping conveniences,  people still went camping. This updated and newly designed color edition  of Camping in the Old Style explores the techniques and methods used  during the golden age of camping, including woodcraft, how to set a  campfire, food preparation, pitching a tent, auto camping, and canoeing.  The book is loaded with nuggets of wisdom from classic books  written by camping and outdoors pioneers of the late nineteenth and  early twentieth centuries, such as Daniel Carter Beard, Warren H.  Miller, Ernest Thompson Seton, Horace Kephart, and Nessmuk, and author  David Wescott includes his own methods, techniques, and philosophies as  well. A generous addition of color photos of present-day classic camping  enthusiasts supplements many of the fascinating archival  black-and-white photos. David Wescott is the author of Primitive  Technology: A Book of Earth Skills. He has been a lifelong enthusiast in  primitive technologies and a leading figure in wilderness education for  more than forty years, including as the managing editor of the Bulletin  of Primitive Technology, the director of Backtracks, and the education  director for the Boulder Outdoor Survival School. He lives in Rexburg,  Idaho, with his wife, Paula.
