Product Description

About the Author

Jim Casada, who has provided an informative introduction to this edition, is professor of history at Winthrop College. He has written numerous articles on sporting figures and outdoor literature and is editor-at-large for Sporting Classics and contributing editor for Fly Fishing Heritage. Before coming the mountains, Horace Kephart (1862-1931) served as librarian of the prestigious Mercantile Library in St. Loius. His significant work, however, was done after he came to live in the Southern Appalachians in 1904. He played important roles in the establishment of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the Appalachian Trail.

Format: Paperback
I purchased an origianl (1926) copy from a used-book dealer. I would NEVER part with it, but I would also never take it out camping with me. but now I can purchase a copy that can be replaced, if need be, and I can share with my friends this book. Kephart showed how to go out (and do it lightly) fifty years before lightweight tents, backpackers stoves, and Gortex existed. while you cannot open this book and have it tell you the best modern outfit to buy, it will still point out what you should have for most any outing (a light, waterproof tent, a good canteen, the proper attire, etc). If you can apply what he says is necessary to the modern supplies and provisions with which we now have access; you can hunt, hike, and camp smarter, lighter, and more comfortably than before. This book belongs in every backpack that hits the trail.

Format: Paperback
This is one of the finest outdoor books ever written--as evidenced by the fact that it is still in print 70 years after it was penned. The reason? Kephart actually lived in the woods and personally refined the techniques he discusses. Yes, the technology has advanced. But trees and animals haven't changed, nor has the best way to snare an animal nor the best way to construct a log cabin.

Given a choice of one book to take into the woods, this should be it.

Format: Paperback
If you prefer a wall-tent, buckskins and an axe to goretex and gas stoves, this book is for you. Old time wood-skills by an experienced man, and a good writer. Some of the equipment detail is outdated (this book was originally written 70 years ago), but there is so much good stuff on everything from dressing and cooking game, to using an axe, to building camp furniture, compass work, marksmanship, and a whole lot more.

Format: Paperback
A very informative book but would benefit from using lots more diagrams and pictures. Would still recommend on the basis of the amount of information that is crammed in.

Format: Paperback
The latest aquistion to my outdoor refs,having found an old wartime copy recently. It contains some interesting snippets lost on this greedy gortex clad world. The items which do appear outdated add to the charm of the book. If it didnt have those bits it would be another piece of drivel written by some one who used his banking express card as a book mark, saw a tree in captivity once and never made or repaired a piece of his field equipment. Originally written at the end of over 100 years of pioneer activity in North America. Anyone who dabbles in the 21st century with Backwoodsman and native skills will find some useful primitive lifestyle ideas to try. Some great project ideas for youth leaders. Get those kids making primitive field gear and let them see it works is worth its weight in gold. Avoid the bee hunt that could prove too interesting lol. TY NESSMUK, A useful addition to my ref material. OK now you are interested go find a copy.

By A. Bentell on 18 April 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the best and most comprehensive book on the subject I have seen. It's from an era when common sense was still common. If you want to learn to be a woodsman, this is the book for you (there are others, but this will do as an foundation). If you are a shooter I think you will laugh at the introduction on marksmanship, its so true and funny I had to laugh out loud when I read it (worth the price of the whole book for me)! The book is bigger than I expected, it the size of an ordinary Bible (I've seen them in hotels) but still it is very portable if you want it with you in the outdoors.
