Woodcraft and Camping by Nessmuk

Woodcraft and Camping

Preface :

Woodcraft is dedicated to the Grand Army of "Outers," as a pocket volume of reference on woodcraft.

           For brick and mortar breed filth and crime,
            With a pulse of evil that throbs and beats;
             And men are withered before their prime
       By the curse paved in with the lanes and streets.
         And lungs are poisoned and shoulders bowed,
             In the smothering reek of mill and mine;
          And death stalks in on the struggling crowd--
            But he shuns the shadow of oak and pine.

Thank you very much for bringing these chapters to us on the internet ! I have long wanted to read Nessmuk’s advice, and enjoy the ability to finally do so here. His woodsman way of life is very appealing to me,especially in these days of technology, as I harbor the same feelings about civilization that he did, and my love of the great outdoors is just as strong. I recommend his advice to anybody wishing to escape into the wilderness...if just for awhile, and to be able to do so comfortably and confidently. Thanks again for bringing his knowledge to us all.

It’s great to have this book available to anyone online that wants to read it. I wish Horace Kephart’s books were available in this format also.

Hello, unfortunately Kephart is still copyrighted.

We have a few other books and links which are not bad, some even absolutely excellent.

Le site est affiché en français avec ses sections françaises seulement, sachez qu’il existe cependant beaucoup à découvrir dans la version Anglaise.
