Product Description
Written by a co-founder of the Boy Scouts of America, Daniel C. Beard, The Field And Forest Handy Book introduces young people to the pleasures and challenges of camping. Beard's great passion was making boys and girls feel at home in nature, allowing them to experience its wonders while fostering their sense of self-sufficiency and independence. In The Field And Forest Handy Book, the author suggests a number of projects, plans, and schemes to entertain those whose travels take them into open fields and forests, who want to know everything from how to build kites and birdhouses to snow houses and snowmen. Various topics covered include packing a horse, making clothes and moccasins, camp cooking, and building piers, boats, and sleds. The directions are clear, the diagrams simple, and the activities exciting. We live in an age when the most common phrase one hears from children is "I'm bored." With this book in hand, you can send them into the smallest woodland plot and be sure they'll have an activity that will occupy them for hours, as well as projects that are not only fun to do but that actually work. Softcover. 448 pages.
