Overview

IT does not need that Herbert Spencer should cross the ocean to tell us that we are an over-worked nation; that our hair turns gray ten years earlier than the Englishman's; or, "that we have had somewhat too much of the gospel of work," and, "it is time to preach the gospel of relaxation." It is all true. But we work harder, accomplish more in a given time and last quite as long as slower races. As to the gray hair- perhaps gray hair is better than none; and it is a fact that the average Briton becomes bald as ...

Overview

IT does not need that Herbert Spencer should cross the ocean to tell us that we are an over-worked nation; that our hair turns gray ten years earlier than the Englishman's; or, "that we have had somewhat too much of the gospel of work," and, "it is time to preach the gospel of relaxation." It is all true. But we work harder, accomplish more in a given time and last quite as long as slower races. As to the gray hair- perhaps gray hair is better than none; and it is a fact that the average Briton becomes bald as early as the American turns gray. There is, however, a sad significance in his words when he says: "In every circle I have met men who had themselves suffered from nervous collapse due to stress of business, or named friends who had either killed themselves by overwork, or had been permanently incapacitated, or had wasted long periods in endeavors to recover health." Too true. And it is the constant strain, without let-up or relaxation, that, in nine cases out of ten, snaps the cord and ends in what the doctors call "nervous prostration"-something akin to paralysis-from which the sufferer seldom wholly recovers.

    Read this book, then get out Read this book, then get outside.

    Humerous and educational account of camping in the mid 1800's. Sears manages to convey his love of the wilderness and dismay at its destruction in a way that effortlessly bridges the intervening 150 years. In addition, there are practical tips and tricks that will help even the most vetern 'old woodsman'. I get the feeling he'd like the idea of our generation learning from him and contonuing to find peace in the woods.
