Bequeathed the mantle of “The No. 1 Pulp” by Time Magazine, Adventure Magazine’s editor Arthur Sullivant Hoffman believed that adventure fiction and literary quality need not be mutually exclusive. A core reason for the popularity of Adventure was The Camp-Fire: the letter column which by post-war 1918 blossomed into a lively community comprised of adventurers, outdoorsmen, pioneers, explorers, and Adventure writers as well, all sharing first-hand knowledge of history and life from the late Nineteenth and Twentieth centuries.
This collection includes every installment of The Camp Fire from 1918-1920, totaling 70 complete columns. Each is presented in its original magazine format and includes illustrations by such Adventure contributors as Edward Hopper. And it includes an introduction by Adventure aficionado Thomas Krabacher.
