About the Author
George Washington Sears (1821 - 1890) was a sportswriter for Forest and Stream magazine in the 1880s and an early conservationist. His stories, appearing under the pen name, Nessmuk popularized self-guided canoe camping tours of the Adirondack lakes in open, lightweight solo canoes and what is today called ultralight camping. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

His tales about campfire making brought back fond memories of counseling at some church camps in the redwoods where everything was dripping wet in the mornings. I taught city kids how to build a decent fire with one match and keep it at a safe, usable level so we didn't need a redwood tree to keep it going, and how we needed to put it out cold before we left camp or hit the sack at night. Nessmuk shared some good stuff in a way I can relate to. I enjoyed it immensely.
From the authors stand point it talks simple and direct about going and enjoying the wilderness,
and that you do not need a ton of extra stuff to enjoy yourself.
Feel like you have gotten into an outdoors rut, think you need a travel camper,
fancy trailers, and such to enjoy the woods? Dare to rethink these ideas and create your own renaissance.
Remember your days of youth when you went into the woods with the barest of supplies all stuffed into a bedroll?
Long for those days of adventure? Need to just relax with no frills?
Then Buy and read this book and renew yourself with a brand new "old" knowledge from a classic sage of the wilderness.
Really decompress yourself on your next outing. I have and glad I did.
( I will say during mosquito season I do bring some deep woods off, lol just saying)
hope this helps some folks out there that need to just go and enjoy.
