On the Trail Woodcraft and Camping Skills for Girls and Young Women By Adelia Beard, By Lina Beard, Foreword by Ann Marie Brown
In the early twentieth century, while young men were flocking to explore the beauty of the American wilderness, their female counterparts were typically relegated to the domestic sphere. But as the fight for equality of the sexes strengthened, so too did the feminine desire to discover the wilderness.

In On the Trail, pioneering outdoorswomen Adelia and Lina Beard answer that call with a hiking and camping guide for women. Written specifically for the “sturdy, independent, and self-reliant young woman,” On the Trail includes dozens of practical, timeless trekking tips on topics such as tracking, setting up campsites, outdoors cooking, canoeing, woodcrafting techniques, and more.

A true classic, On the Trail: An Outdoor Book for Girls is a perfect read for women of any age who love the freedom that comes when exploring the beauty of the outdoors.
