WILDWOOD WISDOM by Ellsworth Jaeger


Email this review


Reported originally -- P. 226 -- when scheduled for summer publication:- ""The how-to-do book for out-of-door living that not only included cookery, nature lore, camp making, care and equipment, but clothing, what to buy and how to make it. Besides information on all these subjects, the background of each article and its history are given, making this virtually a library as well as a guidebook. Invaluable for Boy Scouts, summer camp libraries, similar organizations, for details of packs and packing, blankets and beds, shelters, fires and fire making, sanitation, care and use of ax and knife, insects and dangers from animal life, crafts, canoes, canoeing and portaging, trailcraft, stalking and calling animals, what to do it lost, Indian lore, camp decorations, winter camping -- and excellent information covering all areas of the country"".
