I have also taken pains, when I have been off on a walk, or have been camping, to notice the parties of campers and trampers that I have chanced to meet, and have made a note of their failures or success. The experiences of the pleasant days when, in my teens, I climbed the mountains of Oxford County, or sailed through Casco Bay, have added largely to the stock of notes- and finally the diaries of the war, and the recollections of the field, have contributed generously- so that, with quotations, and some help from other sources, a sizable volume is ready.Although it is prepared for young men,—for students more especially,—it contains much, I trust, that will prove valuable to campers-out in general.[Pg 6]I am under obligations to Dr.

Elliott Coues, of the United States Army, for the valuable advice contained in Chapter XIII.- and I esteem it a piece of good fortune that his excellent work (Field Ornithology) should have been published before this effort of mine, for I hardly know where else I could have found the information with authority so unquestionable.ContentsCHAPTER.I.
