Horace Kephart came to North Carolina in 1904, after a career in St. Louis as a librarian. He lived in the Hazel Creek area of Swain County and later moved to Bryson City, the county seat. He wrote many books and articles about the outdoors. CAMPING AND WOODCRAFT, published in 1906, is considered a classic in its field and is still in print over eighty years later. Dean discusses some of KephartÃ¯Â¿Â½s woodcraft wisdom.
