For Fun & Survival
by Ernest Wilkinson
How would you like to go camping in the winter and stay warm without a tent? Ernest Wilkinson re-invented the snow cave after decades of experience in the winter woods. In his book Snow Caves For Fun & Survival Wilkinson teaches you how to build an effective snow cave so you can sleep comfortably and store your food and water without them freezing. He still uses his summer-rated sleeping bag, even when the temperature is -20F to -30F. Perhaps most importantly, Wilkinson shares the secrets to building snow caves without getting soaking wet in the process!
Another exciting aspect of Snow Caves For Fun & Survival is that you do not need to have deep, deep snow to make good shelters. Even in a foot or less of snow you can quickly pile up enough snow to make a cozy shelter. The book also includes coverage of igloos, emergency shelters, and lean-to's, plus there are chapters on winter clothing, winter food, and recommended equipment. Snow Caves For Fun & Survival. Adobe Village Press. 1986, 1992. Revised 2007. ISBN: 9780979559006. 100 pages.
