Women's Guide to Outdoor Sports
Tulsa, Winchester Press, (1982). A practical guide for women interested in camping, hiking, backpacking, navigating, paddling, fishing, hunting, archery, etc., because "unlike boys, girls seldom absorb outdoor lore and skills when they are young. Some fortunate girls, especially if they grow up on farms, may be encouraged or at least permitted to join their fathers or brothers..." Inscribed by the author. With a foreword by Grits Gresham, host of The American Sportsman and author of, among others, the 1969 book The Sportsman and His Family Outdoors, a title whose obvious deficits this book aims to correct. Near fine in a very good dust jacket with several closed edge tears. An uncommon book, especially signed. [#034453] SOLD
