eBook available: Camping in the Winter Woods

Our latest project to graduate from Distributed Proofreaders to Project Gutenberg is Camping in the Winter Woods, a 1912 juvenile novel by Elmer Russell Gregor.

In the book, two young men spend a winter in the Maine woods with a mentor, learning about the environment and its inhabitants. The book is episodic in nature, with each chapter dealing with a new hunting expedition, danger, or discovery. Many of these adventures serve to describe wildlife behavior and illustrate outdoor survival techniques.

The author followed this up with a sequel the next year: Camping on Western Trails, in which the protagonists explore the Rocky Mountains.

If you’re interested in reading the first adventure, it is now freely available for online reading (or download in popular eBook formats) through Project Gutenberg.
