This short, engaging book, subtitled "Personal experiences in the higher mountain trails with complete directions for the outfitting of inexpensive expeditions," was penned in 1923 by Eugene Davenport (1856-1941), dean of the College of Agriculture at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign from 1895 to1922. Need a rest? Head to the mountains, Davenport advises, for "Nowhere else is there such a succession of details to occupy the attention without mental strain as is afforded on the trail, and if it should chance to lie on the upper levels of the mountains, there is not to be found elsewhere so vast an outlay of nature's best or so changing a display of her mighty works. Altogether, there is nothing to be compared with a vacation on the trail."
