Na tejto stránke nájdete kópiu albumu, ktorý dostal Ernest Thompson Seton pri návšteve Prahy v roku 1936 od československých woodcrafterov.

Sú v ňom mnohé historicky cenné fotografie z táboriska Walden v Jánskej doline, ktorý bol ťažiskovým bodom woodcrafterského diania u nás do 50-tych rokov 20-teho storočia.

A week's trip to the High Tatras. It's me.

That's doc Fu. We hiked 110 km cooked and camped out of doors

Ohniste, where Edelweiss grows

Fu's eating his breakfast

That's me. We camped that night in the Litov Valley

Shepherds from the Polish border

Fu's wasting my arrows

On top of my tee-pee

The Wahpetons were quite a tribe

Here they are making their beds

That's a cabin again

Sova is one of our boys

You had to know the trick. (It served for defense purposes)

Smrk was quite a type too. He lived in Walden for more then four years

6000 feet high, the moon and the rising sun. We were on skies all the night

He loved his mountains

My sister was with us that day

A storm was pretty near. (It is me.)

Here the St.John's valley begins

... and just about here it ends

The sun shines bright....on my cousin Vlada, who took these pictures

Here we had some milk in the forester's. My sister, Sova, Me, Beaver, and finally Sova's sister

The cabin after breakfast, had our lunch like this out in the woods, and come back at night

We were mighty hungry, you can imagine

You ought to be able to recognioze all these people by now (Of course you don't see my face, but everybody in camp can tell my nap sack

This was a stupid game

Here we are in youth hostel over night
