Gives much definite and helpful information on equipment and campmaking, on what to do in emergencies, on wild food and wild foes, the use of the camera, swimming, camp fun and frolics; the whole, saved from being a mere catalogue by the authors' appreciation of the outdoor life.

Show Excerpt

e side of bush or tree in the direction you are going, but bent down away from that side, or toward the bush, so that the lighter underside of the leaves will show and make a plain trail. Make these signs conspicuous and close together, for in returning, a dozen feet without the broken branch will sometimes confuse you, especially as everything has a different look when seen from the opposite side. By this same token it is a wise precaution to look back frequently as you go and impress the homeward-bound landmarks on your memory. If in your wanderings you have branched off and made ineffectual or blind trails which lead nowhere, and, in returning to camp, you are led astray by one of them, do not leave the false trail and strike out to make a new one, but turn back and follow the false trail to its beginning, for it must lead to the true trail again. Don't lose sight of your broken branches.

[Illustration: Blazing the trail by bending down and breaking branches.]
