The Basic Essentials of Camping
Cliff sets his goals to increase the skill level of the general camping public. Of course, a thorough explanation of gear is concisely included for campers interested in procuring equipment. Fire starting procedures and camp cooking are discussed in detail.
Finding a lack of basic skills in camps everywhere, Cliff devotes a chapter to "ropesmanship". Map and compass skills are another area effectively covered in this book.
