And has recently appeared in Project Gutenberg, without illustrations, as a text file:

http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/24579

(so not as good as the zianet illustrated versions).

Has this project moved forward or been supplanted?

I would love to see the other two Nessmuk books - "Canoeing the Adirondacks with Nessmuk" and his book of poetry. Inventor of ultra-light camping. He'd have loved some of the toys we have today.

I believe that JBenny is currently busy with other things. But he hasn't said that he is giving up, so I imagine that the project is still in the pipeline.
If he tells us that he is currently too busy, then I'm certainly prepared to have a go, especially since an html source is now available.

There is nothing for me to do. You can get the ebook in several formats from the website mentioned. BTW, I had a hand in that, which is why I didn't post the ebook here. As for the book of poetry and the Adirondack Letters, they will probably be done eventually as a colaborative effort.

Edit: If you simply must have a copy posted here, I can upload the Mobipocket version. Let me know if this is desired.

"Canoeing the Adirondacks" is a copyrighted book, which is based on Nessmuk's Adirondack Letters, as published in "Forest and Stream". The letters can be made into a free ebook. The copyrighted book cannot.

In which case, the modern equivalent is likely to be "chigger".

Yes, that would be the modern vernacular equivalent. However, I don't know for sure if the two are the exact same insect or not.

I believe the plain text version on PG was supplied by the chap who has the illustrated version on his website. He mentioned intention to do so in email.

Incidentally, he stops by MobileRead on occasion.

The chap who did "Woodcraft by Nessmuk" is now working on _Forest Runes_, Nessmuk's poetry collection. You can find it here: http://www.zianet.com/jgray/nessmuk/...itle_page.html

It's not complete: poetry is more work to convert and format, and he's putting up pages as he completes them. Ebooks will be posted when he's got it completely done.
