Camping and Woodcraft: A Handbook for Vacation Campers and for Travelers in the Wilderness
Townsend, Which is the Heroine? Melville, Slavery in the Barbary States. Dupuy, " WillWin? Aug 15, Tim rated it it was amazing. I came across this book many years ago in a library. I read it as an adventure story with the most amazing details of practical self sufficiency in the backwoods of some of the American states, but knowing that everything Kephart was relating was true. If anyone in the US, or Canada for that matter, wants to know all that they need to know about venturing into the inhospitable areas of their countries, this is the man, this is the book.
There is nothing he doesn't cover, if it's not in his book, do I came across this book many years ago in a library. There is nothing he doesn't cover, if it's not in his book, don't do it! Unfortunately apart from the copy in my library, which I managed to purchase when withdrawn, I have never seen it in print. I don't know if it's in reprint in the US, haven't seen it on Amazon, but it can be downloaded in digital form.
I'm not embarrassed to say that I often re read this simply as an adventure story, rather like Robinson Crusoe, but a lot more exciting and practical! The disgraceful fact is that although I have many US sites relating to the outdoors, camping, shooting, fishing etc. Sep 12, Yodar rated it it was amazing. This book, published in , is timeless. The wisdom and practicality within are refreshing - a return to basics and raw technology that is still relevant today. Jan 19, David rated it it was amazing. Kephart lived in the Great Smoky Mountains and spent most of his time in the wil Originally published in as one volume, Camping and Woodcraft was expanded into a two-volume edition in To speak poorly of Horace Kephart's masterpiece is tantamount to treason in outdoors communities.
But I think this book has some serious flaws that need to be addressed for a modern reader: The attempt to universalize this book - and it truly is a reference book - makes this book difficult to use as a reference guide. If this is a book meant to be read at home before a journey, it can be sort of useful but it's really unwieldy, and many of the topics talked about really have to be practiced as yo To speak poorly of Horace Kephart's masterpiece is tantamount to treason in outdoors communities. If this is a book meant to be read at home before a journey, it can be sort of useful but it's really unwieldy, and many of the topics talked about really have to be practiced as you do them.
If this is a book that's meant to be read and used in the field, this is just too dense and large of a book to do it - and, today, so much of the information given feels obsolete and anachronistic.
For what it is, it's a masterpiece, and Kephart remains a source of deep, scholarly knowledge, some of which is being relearned by today's outdoorspeople like his discussion of how important keeping weight down is, for example. One of my favorite books on the outdoors. An absolute wealth of information that is still relevant today. I've never seen an author dedicate so much of life to research, testing, and trying to be as accurate and culminating as possible.
A reference book this is. Super reference book for the serious, old-time camper. Who camps like this today? Mel This is the go-to reference book for the serious camper; I was introduced to it in as my father gave it to me as a gift. Nov 16, Great read written in good Amer. Reading about tents again. Dec 14, Mel Let us put up a tent! Dec 16, May 24, Philip rated it it was amazing Shelves: One of the greatest books I have ever read. If you are venturing out of your front door into the worlds wild places this is a must read. Timeless treasure trove of practical advice on how to make do when things get interesting!
Horace is one of my all time heroes Wise words extend to what to do even before you venture out through the front door sneak your latest acquisitions in through the back door Written over a hundred years ago but some things don't change. We would like silk tents, air mattresses, fibre packing cases, and all that sort of thing; but we would soon " go broke " if we started in at that rate. I am saying nothing about guns, rods, reels, and such-like, because they are the things that every well conducted sportsman goes broke on, anyway, as a matter of course.
I am speaking only of such purchases as might be thought extravagant. And it is conceivable that some folks might call it extravagant to pay thirty-five dollars for a thing to sleep in when you lie out of doors on the ground from choice, or thirty dollars for pots and pans to cook with when you are "playing hobo" as the unregenerate call our sport. To practise shrewd economies in such things helps out if you are caught slipping in through the back gate with a brand-new gun, when everybody knows that you already possess more guns than you can find legitimate use for.
If one begins, as he should, six months in advance, to plan and prepare for his next summer or fall vacation, he can, by gradual and surreptitious hoarding, get together a commendable camping equipment, and nobody will notice the outlay. The best way is to make many of the things yourself. This gives your pastime an air of thrift, and propitiates the Lares and Penates by keeping you home o' nights.

And there is a world of solid comfort in having every-thing fixed just to suit you. The only way to have it so is to do the work yourself. Jul 15, Kathy rated it it was amazing. I read Kephart's book many long years a go, as a girl scout. Through time the book was lost somewhere, or given away, but not its memories. It is the story of Kephart's role in the establishment of th I read Kephart's book many long years a go, as a girl scout. It is the story of Kephart's role in the establishment of the Great Smokey Mountains National Park and its effect on people of the region, whose ancestors I lived among in Bryson City for many years.

Gary rekindled my interest in Kephart and both of his books "Camping and Woodcraft", as well as "Our Southern Highlanders", which I read in a course on Appalachian Literature at Appalachian State University in the mid 70s. Thank you Gary for allowing my memories to come back to life, while giving me a much greater knowledge and appreciation of Horace Kephart. I have reviewed this as the original separate books, Camping and Woodcraft, and Camp Cookery.
I have a copy of the the combined volume in poor condition and am very glad it has had a well deserved reprint. I don't know how well Kephart is known in his own country, but if not well he deserves greater recognition. He does not appear to be very well known in the UK, even by our Ray Mears, our modern exponent of outdoor, self sufficient, living. Although I have to say that various knowledge that Mears I have reviewed this as the original separate books, Camping and Woodcraft, and Camp Cookery.
