Handy Book : Field and Forest - Dayton History Museum Store
Handy Book : Field and Forest
Be at home in nature?all through the year! This Handy Book was written in 1906 by a pioneer of the scouting movement, Daniel C. Beard, whose great passion was making boys and girls feel at home in the great outdoors. Then, as now, the reward is to experience nature's wonders while fostering self-sufficiency and independence. That is what The Field and Forest Handy Book provides. There are chapters on packing a horse, on making clothes and moccasins, on camp cooking, on building piers, boats, sleds, kites, birdhouses, snow houses, and snowmen. Everything imaginable for some serious fun.
