How to Camp Out, Hints for Camping and Walking [NOOK Book]

Overview

In these few pages I have tried to prepare something about camping and walking, such as I should have enjoyed reading when I was a boy; and, with this thought in my mind, I some years ago began to collect the subject-matter for a book of this kind, by jotting down all questions about camping, &c., that my young friends asked me.

    This is just a copy of "How to Camp Out" by John Mead
