Excerpt

en wet, better than if it were sewed all around. You can lay what spare clothing you have, and your day-clothes, between the lining and blanket, when the night is very cold.

In almost any event, you will want to carry a spare shirt; and in cold weather you can put this on, when you will find that a pound of shirt is as warm as two pounds of overcoat.

If you take all I advise, you will not absolutely need an overcoat, and can thus save carrying a number of pounds.

Who knew camping out was so popular back in the 1870s! This short book offers several helpful camping hints, many useful today.

*Cover with another piece of beef jerky
*Spear it with a sharp stick
*Roast over the campfire until melty
*Enjoy!
