An illustrated history of the evolution of camping from the late nineteenth century through present day through its most significant components: the campsite, the campfire, the picnic table, the map, the tent, the sleeping bag, water delivery, and trash collection. Readable as eight individual narratives, these histories align to illustrate the radical transformation of a mythical ideal over the 150-year period since the emergence of recreational camping in the United States. Hogues research relied extensively on the image collections at the Adirondack Experience.
