George Washington Sears (1821 - 1890) was a writer for Forest and Stream magazine, a poet and early conservationist. He was also a pioneer and advocate of ultralight camping.
At the age of 62, Sears completed a camping journey of nearly the almost 300 miles through the central Adirondacks in an ultralight canoe which he carried on his head between rivers. This wonderfully written text is ideal for those who love the outdoors. It is full of valuable tips on camping, fishing, hunting and more.
