Legendary canoeing guide, conservationist in the 1800s, and one of the first proponents of the popular "ultralight" camping style, George Washington Sears (who used the pen name "Nessmuk") was a true American mountain man. Using a 9 foot long, 10 1/2 pound canoe, he successfully completed a 266 mile journey through the central Adirondacks. His classic treatise on American camping, Woodcraft, is definitive proof that he was the most capable and intelligent woodsman of his time. First published in 1900, and continuously in print ever since then, this is the ultimate book for hikers, campers, fishers, canoers, and anyone else who feels the call of the wild. With information on what to bring, how to build fires, how to fish with and without flies, and how to cook, this book remains relevant in our modern society. For anyone with even a passing interest in getting closer to nature, this is required reading. The forerunner of the ultralight camping movement and the precursor to all other books on camping and traveling through the wilderness, Woodcraft belongs on the bookshelf of every aspiring mountain person. Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for fishermen. Our books for anglers include titles that focus on fly fishing, bait fishing, fly-casting, spin casting, deep sea fishing, and surf fishing. Our books offer both practical advice on tackle, techniques, knots, and more, as well as lyrical prose on fishing for bass, trout, salmon, crappie, baitfish, catfish, and more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to publishing books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked by other publishers and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.
