Reading “In Camp and Cabin”

By the way, if you are enjoying these extracts from the account of John Steele, you can read it for yourself online. Free!

The book is available at Google Play or at Just search by title in the search bar (not the Wayback Machine, which is for webpages).

It’s a short book, but one of the best forty-niner accounts that I know. It was originally published in 1901, when Steele was 69 years old. He died in 1905.

I have been using the Lakeside Classics edition, and that’s the one that my page numbers refer to. has both the original edition (left), and the Lakeside Classics edition, which was published in 1928.
