Synopsis

Camping for Boys by H. W. Gibson

Do you know how to make a camp bed, test the freshness of an egg or light a match when there is nothing to strike it on? From setting up camp to choosing a motto, treating blisters to making a bow and arrow, Camping for Boys will ensure a happy, healthy time is had by all when out of doors. First published in 1913, in an era before televisions and video games, Camping for Boys was an indispensable guide for any young boy wanting to make the most of the great outdoors. With sections on games for a rainy day, first aid, cooking, building and maintaining the campfire, nature study, forecasting the weather, building a hygienic camp toilet, organisation, leadership and discipline, this valuable little book will help big kids to regain their youth and experience the thrill of the wind in their hair. Also suitable for armchair campers.
