Campfire Reading: Vintage Camping Books


Let’s gather around the campfire, roast marshmallows, and discuss vintage camping books and hiking books. These books are a nostalgic treasure trove for any lover of the outdoors. This is camping the way it used to be. No smartphones, no automatic air-mattress pumps, no generators. Just the great outdoors, the stars above, and the essentials (plus s’mores). The outdoor life has been embraced by pagans, socialists, novelists and pioneers of the automobile industry. There are books galore about how to camp, where to camp, what to eat and how to stay alive if things go badly.

Pitch your tent and browse 125 years of camping literature.
