The First How-To Manual on Camping and Outdoors Life Published in America

This deluxe unabridged reprint Legacy Edition of original camper John Gould's How To Camp Out is the very first handbook on camping and wilderness life skills. Originally published in 1877, this vintage book is widely regarded as the first published how-to manual and travel guide on how to go camping in the American wilderness for recreation and restoration.

These classic pages contain a wealth of timeless tips on how to camp, hike, and cook in the old style. Learn how the old campers escaped city life to restore their senses and find vitality in the forests and mountains of the American wilds. Topics include how to get ready for a camping trip, equipment for campers, clothing, stoves and camp kitchen, cooking and recipes, hiking and backpacking, how to make camp, types of tents for classic camping, and how to keep clean while camping.

This vintage book includes timeless knowledge about wilderness life, which has largely been lost to time, but never forgotten by the old masters. Although this book represents thought from a former time, it also reveals much about the rich history of camping and the wilderness, and many of the tips, tricks, and discussions are still relevant for study today

About the Doublebit Press Legacy Editions

Sometimes we need to remember our history to move forward. Sometimes, remembering our heritage is just fun or inspirational. With technology playing a major role in everyday life, sometimes we need to take a step back in time to find those basic building blocks used for gaining mastery - the things that we have luckily not completely lost and has been recorded in books over the last two centuries. These skills aren't forgotten, they've just been shelved. It's time to unshelve them once again and reclaim the lost knowledge of self-sufficiency
