Past Tents: The Way We Camped by Susan Snyder
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is a light-hearted and affectionate look at America's infatuation with camping and the great outdoors from its early years. "Past Tents" is packed with anecdotes and rare photographs of family adventures in the wilderness from the first years of automobiles and campgrounds. It also features some of the remarkable, bizarre, and "helpful" hints and tips found at the newly created national parks and forests of the time. Easy to pick up, hard to put down, this is the perfect gift for anyone who's ever been in thrall of campfires, toasted marshmallows, and adventures in the great outdoors.
