Print type: Soft cover, new.
W. Hamilton Gibson's guide to camping and trapping will give you a lesson in self-sufficiency and living simply.
Building camp shelters and log huts, woodland bedding, and birch canoes are just some of the skills you can learn by reading this classic wilderness manual.
This book is a perfect gift for the outdoorsman interested in learning new camping techniques.
Learn some of the old tried and true tricks for bait and trapping, such as creating portable snares or coop traps. These simple techniques make catching animals such as beavers, partridge, raccoons, and rabbits on your next camping trip a cinch.
While the book includes numerous effective traps, it promotes a conservationist hunting style by encouraging readers to respect animals and to never pursue trap-making out of cruelty.
The guide also includes information on how to make the most out of your catch, with recipes for making venison jerky, gutting fish, and instructions on curing and tanning fur skins.

William Hamilton Gibson, (born October 5, 1850, Sandy Hook, Connecticut, U.S.—died July 16, 1896, Washington, Connecticut), American illustrator, author, and naturalist whose well-received images reached a large audience through the popular magazines of his day.
As a child, Gibson sketched flowers and insects, developed an interest in botany and entomology, and acquired great skill in making wax flowers. His first drawings were published in 1870 and were of a technical character.
He rapidly became an expert illustrator and a remarkably able wood engraver, while also practicing lithography with great success. He drew for many periodicals, his most popular works being a long series of illustrations for nature articles published in Harper’s Weekly, Scribner’s Monthly, and Century. Gibson was also an expert photographer: his drawings reflect this knowledge in their nearly photographic and almost microscopic accuracy of detail.
In 1893, three years before his death, Gibson made drawings of the buildings and landscape of the grounds at the World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago, which were used for an article in Scribner’s entitled “Foreground and Vista at the Fair.”
