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.

Wise words extend to what to do

An excellent commentary on not only what to bring and how to camp, it also digresses into why we camp. While its philosophy can be a little misogynistic on occasion, I pardon it as being a product of its time. Looking past the male-centric exterior, I think this book has a lot to say about why campi

This is from an American point of view, so some of the things in here weren't relevant to me.

There wasn't much to be learned here either for me as I've read most of the things in other books.

When I bought this book, I knew nothing about it, I bought it because of the title.

After buying it though, I

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

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:
