The master bushcrafter hands down. I own many bushcraft skill books and this is the one I return to again and again. As well as covering the more or less standard skills, Mors shows us how to avoid getting hurt while using knife, axe and so on. For the modern person who probably never dropped a tree (as one example) he gives clear help on how to do it with no risk to life and limb. It's the nature of bushcrafting that we are at some distance to help and the consequences of injury are just that much greater. For someone interested in starting developing bushcrafting skills, each chapter is a gold mine of information. Book in hand, go to a area near you and practice these skills. It's not as easy as some writers will have you believe, but don't be down cast, it's worth it and the skill will come. Sucess will breed sucess and your confidence in yourself and your skills will grow. Don't be in a hurry to purchase a lot of new and fancy equiptment, see how well you can manage on the cheap. It's fun and surprisingly possible. Once you have a clearer idea of what your needs really are, then you can invest in some really fine quality gear. But remember, you will have to carry it, so there is a limit. Knowledge and practiced skills on the other hand on the other hand don't weigh anything. Best Wishes to you!
