Camping comfort is not necessarily related to the amount of equipment. Nor does the author believe that the most expensive paraphernalia is necessarily as good as something that can be made at home. The author is an ex-marine and he reveals the hardwon secrets of camping out that his service years' training and years of dedicated outdoorsmanship have given him. Mr. Johnson writes easily and to the point. In discussing equipment, wherever possible he has added short lists of suppliers and the representative reasonable price. Each item of suggested equipment is briefly described for use and durability. Good planning makes for good camping and there are sections dealing with the proper clothing for men and women, the necessary medical kit, the proper diet for outdoorsmen (storage and preparation) and tested tips on how to make sleeping arrangements snug and safe. Full addresses of the regional offices supplying camping sites as well as state-by-state lists of camping facilities are given at the end of the book.
