KIRKUS REVIEW

The urban youngster who feels the call of the wild should be able to improvise some happy hours in his own back yard -- where, with Sylvia Cassell's guidance, he can be a city slicker and a leatherstocking at the same time. The very elementary procedures for building a fire, cooking simple fare, constructing a tin can stove and building a fire in a wheelbarrow are explained here for the uninitiated. The author includes equipment suggestions for camping out and outlines a number of simple competitive games for small or large groups relying on inexpensive equipment --from giant tin can stilts to skittles. Locum rusticity --home-style.
