Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Remember those great summer camping trips from your childhood—the magical ones when you discovered the fish hiding in the shaded swimming spot and cooked a meal over an open fire? This collection of outdoor activities from long ago pays tribute to an age when every kid knew how to bait a hook. And theres plenty in these vintage pages that children of all ages will still find worth learning...and lots of fun.
Weve included choice camping and fishing ideas; gadgets, projects, and appliances to construct (including an improved tent peg and an outdoor fireplace); advice for making the most of your time on the water; all the basics of creating a temporary or permanent camp structure; and fundamental skills such as archery. Youll even discover lesser-known secrets for taking full advantage of a winter camp-out. Campers will be amused and amazed by some of the ways yesterdays adventurers kept themselves busy. From the fascinating (making a bed of boughs and a paddle-wheel boat) to the fantastic (building a log cabin), everybody will find a panorama of entertaining possibilities represented here.
