An Outdoor Book for Girls, Hardback Book


Do you know how to make a raft of logs, find your way by the north star, or bake biscuits on a stone?

From what to wear in camp to how to identify poisonous plants, making flapjacks in the outdoors to preparing a tourniquet, "An Outdoor Book for Girls" is the perfect manual for all those tomboys out there who would rather be on the trail than tied to the kitchen sink.

First published in 1915, in an era before televisions and video games, "An Outdoor Book for Girls" was an indispensable guide for any young lady wanting to make the most of the great outdoors.

With sections on the identification of poisonous plants, telling apart different animal footprints, useful knots and how to tie them, some Sunday games for a quiet day in camp and even making an outdoor dressing table, this valuable little book will help outdoorsy girls to regain their spirit of adventure and experience the thrill of the wind in their hair.

No boys allowed.
