This is not a large book, but it is pleasantly written, profusely illustrated and neatly bound, and is an excellent little book for boys, or those who may be called to a life in the woods, either for a long or short period. Whether one may want to camp out for months, or merely take a short run to the woods for ferns or autumn leaves, the hints and directions are equally explicit. We believe there are few libraries where those who make use of them have any love for wild nature, but will find a. welcome addition in this little book.
