  • Camping in the Old Style by David Wescott is a well researched and presented book I understand old style camping will not match the new style camping, however, this is a great book to learn how camping was in the past.If you feel the desire to camp as your grandparents or even your great grandparents did then you should read this book The material is presented well and the pictures are fantastic
