Description


Heralded as the "bible of outdoorsmen" by hunters, campers, fishers, and craftsmen of all walks, Horace Kephart's perennially sought-after guidebook Woodcraft, stands as an astounding testament to the vast depth and precision of the author's practical knowledge and profound love of life in the outdoors. The second half of Kephart's enormous two-volume collection, Camping and Woodcraft, this more portable book contains a wealth of information on living off the land. Topics covered include:

  • Pathfinding
  • Axemanship
  • Cabin construction
  • Knot-tying
  • Marksmanship
  • Hide tanning
  • Cave exploration
  • Living off the country

The first volume, Camping, covers skills like outfitting, campfires, cookery, tenting, and much more Camping as a single volume as well as the combined Camping and Woodcraft are newly available from Churchill & Dunn

A beacon of self-reliance with the intellectual appetite of the world's most accomplished scholars, Kephart spent his early years in voracious pursuit of knowledge as a precocious student, bibliophile, and librarian at such prestigious institutions as Yale University and the Saint Louis Mercantile, working as a freelance writer all the while.

As he fell in love with the outdoors and the skills required to navigate them, Kephart grew proportionally dissatisfied with the daily monotony of life in academia, taking to the woods for days on end with increasing frequency before finally making the Great Smoky Mountains his permanent home.

Back in print for a new generation of self-reliant, wilderness-loving campers and sportsmen, this high quality edition is a tremendous resource for anyone who loves the outdoors.
