on Camping

Kenneth Rexroth was an important American poet known as the "Father of the Beats" (though he had the good sense to eschew that label). He wrote searing love poems, brilliant essays, and masterful translations. You probably already knew all that. But did you know that he was also an expert on camping? That's his very own camping stove up top (and the man himself down below), and with summer here, you might want to get ready to head outdoors by reading his unpublished guide to Camping in the Western Mountains (1939) right here.
