The Book fo Camping and Woodcraft

Horace Kephart

Book Overview: 

In the Introduction to Camping and Woodcraft, Horace Kephart wrote: “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.” The author further described the content of this book: “In the following chapters I offer some suggestions on outfitting, making camps, dressing and keeping game and fish, camp cookery, forest travel, how to avoid getting lost, and what to do if one does get lost, living off the country, what the different species of trees are good for (from a camper's viewpoint), backwoods handicrafts in wood, bark, skins and other raw materials, the treatment of wounds and other injuries, and some other branches of woodcraft that may be of service when one is far from shops and from hired help.

One of the greatest books I have ever read. If you are venturing out of your front door into the worlds wild places this is a must read. Timeless treasure trove of practical advice on how to make do when things get interesting! Horace is one of my all time heroes.....

Wise words extend to what to do

While this book was published over 100 years ago it still provides highly relevant information to those who choose to camp out in the wilderness, or even in the not so wilderness. Many measures and practices described have been made obsolete by improvements or wholly by new technologies not imagined

I came across this book many years ago in a library.
I read it as an adventure story with the most amazing details of practical self sufficiency in the backwoods of some of the American states, but knowing that everything Kephart was relating was true.

I read Kephart's book many long years a go, as a girl scout. Through time the book was lost somewhere, or given away, but not its memories.
I repurchased a copy of it the night Gary Carden had his book signing of "Outlander" on July 14, 2012 at the Jackson County Library. "Outlander" is a script cop

Excellent!! Hard to review something that is encyclopedic in scope. Covers all aspects of outdoor gear, food/game and generally traveling through the woods. From a simple bivouac to building a cabin. Keep the bugs, just about anything you need for traipsing about.

To speak poorly of Horace Kephart's masterpiece is tantamount to treason in outdoors communities. But I think this book has some serious flaws that need to be addressed for a modern reader:

The attempt to universalize this book - and it truly is a reference book - makes this book difficult to use as
