American Boy's Handybook Of Camplore And Woodcraft
I must admit this is one of my favorites. The language used is an endless source of amusement.
One thing to keep in mind is the age of these tomes. Language has changed a great deal in 150 years.
Please take the time to read through them before something goes wrong while you still have the internet available to define such terms as "treacle". I understand that many on here will already know what treacle is, but here in California, I've never heard anyone utter that word except for my late father.
Also, I understand that some of the language may prove to be offensive to some. Describing native peoples as "painted savages" is unacceptable today, but again, please take into account the age of the books when you read them.
