    I expect you have sorted this out by now, but in just doing a search for any references on SotP to Nessmuk's famous book I came across your post.
    My somewhat battered copy of 'Woodcraft and Camping: the great American classic of Camping' is the Dover edition, first published in 1963. It contains the drawings by George Sears, aka Nessmuk. It is ISBN 0-486-21145-2.
