Nineteenth-century building advice that is eminently practical in the twenty-first century. 330 b/w illustrations
This is the ultimate reference to fabricating primitive shelters. This is a reprint of the classic book published in 1914. Authored by Daniel Carter Beard, an American illustrator, author, youth leader, and social reformer who founded the Sons of Daniel Boone in 1905, which Beard later merged with the Boy Scouts of America (BSA).
His book illustrates everything from Indian hogans, wigwams and lean-tos to log cabins, with details on hearths and chimneys. Additionally it covers caches and the use of the ax, as most all the shelters in this book can be made with only a ax and a knife. I highly recommend this book for the outdoors person, suvialist and scout-masters. This is a great read.Download book
