Ever wonder how to make a teepee, wigwam or lean-to? What it was like camping out before insulated sleeping bags? Bernard S. Mason answers these questions and more in Boy's Book of Camping and Wood Crafts. Everything from fitting everything you need (and what that is exactly) in one pack to building shelter and starting your campfire is explained in great detail and with easy to read diagrams and drawings.
In a new Introduction to this American classic, Gordon--the author of "The Joy of Family Camping"--details the differences between camping then and now. Originally written in the 1950s, this book is sure to please both the young and old as the techniques of yesterday are explored once more.
