Overview


Created during the Great Depression by the U.S. Forest Service, this guide was designed to provide environmental safety and maintenance advice for visitors to national forests and parks. Loaded with finely crafted drawings and plans for outdoor stoves and fireplaces, this manual offers a window into a bygone era of handyman activity as well as a wealth of still-useful information for building barbecue pits, chimneys, warming units, and other outdoor heating sources.
Coverage includes considerations of general design problems and their solutions; discussion of detailed designs, from foundations to chimneys; construction materials, including iron, brick, concrete, stone, and sand; and specific types of camp stoves and fireplaces. Do-it-yourselfers interested in older construction techniques will find this volume a source of many tried-and-true ideas and methods.
