Written at a time when woodlore and woodcraft were vital skills, and when America's wilderness regions offered a true opportunity for "roughing it," this book has remained a classic through three generations of readers. The author, George W. Sears, is best known as "Nessmuk," and if ever there was a Daniel Boone, this must have been the man! His knowledge of how to get along on camping, hiking, and hunting trips - and how to get the most out of such experiences - is unsurpassed. No book has ever inspired so many readers to get out and try out-door living for themselves. 8-1/2" x 5-3/8" with 105 pages.
