Reviews - What do customers think about Shifts and Expedients of Camp Travel and Exploration?
The very first survival manual Apr 15, 2008
If you want to know how to make pemmican, judge the points of a riding camel or find the correct powder charge for a smoothbore cannon - or indeed practically any other skill required on the 19th-century frontiers of empire - this is the book for you. Lord and Baines (Baines was a professional artist as well as an explorer, so the illustrations are superb) really had been there and done it in the era of Livingstone, Stanley and all the other pioneers. Their book is a fascinating distillation of their immense practical experience, still worth reading for the ideas by any outdoor person and a treasure-trove for anyone interested in the realities behind Western expansion in the Victorian period.
The book also appeared as 'Shifts and Expedients of Camp Life' and there have been other republications under that title.
