Making Camp: A Visual History of Camping's Most Essential Items and Activities

by Martin Hogue Author

Ah, camping. Voluntarily sleeping outside—whether it's in a tent, RV, your backyard, or on the side of a mountain—is something humans have done for millennia. This illustrated book takes us through the history of camping in the great outdoors, from recreational camping in the late 1800s to more modern conveniences of today. A great gift for the nature enthusiast, or to bring along in your own pack to read as you sit by a campfire.
