Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Addressed mainly to campers, with information on clothes and gear, making fires, and a wonderful section on shelters made with handgathered materials. It can also be read for historical accuracy--a well-researched account of life in America in the 1800s, when survival depended not only on coping with daily perils, but also on one's ability to use wits as well as hands for survival.

Synopsis:

This historical guide, originally written in 1945, includes information on making fires, canoeing, using axes and knives, and crafting shelters from hand-gathered materials. Readers also learn about clothing, gear, and useful plants. This book also is an account of life in the 1800s, when survival in the wild depended on one's skill and ingenuity.

Synopsis:

This historical guide, originally written in 1945, includes information on making fires, canoeing, using axes and knives, and crafting shelters from hand-gathered materials. 425 illustrations.
