Publisher Comments:

If you have ever wished you could escape to your own Walden Pond, consider creating a unique wilderness haven with the instructions found in this book! While woodcraft usually brings furniture to mind, this book is a guide to the craft of extended camping and travel in the woods. First published in 1919, this wilderness book, complete with illustrations, teaches you how to construct a simple log cabin, live off the land, build different types of fires, make snowshoes, and use outdoor tools. With all the modern conveniences of camping today, these forgotten skills are invaluable for those longing to return to a simpler, more self-sufficient time.

Written by an expert woodsman, the easy to follow sections make this suitable for both young and old adventurers. Exploring the unknown is often daunting, but with the lessons found in this book, even the most novice of backpackers will know how to use a compass so they wont get lost, the types of camp foods they should bring to sustain their energy, and how to make shelter to stay safe from the elements. With the basics taken care of, go forth into the woods and trek the pathless forest—just dont forget to bring this timeless guide with you!


Learn how to build and furnish your own log cabin!
