Overview

This book is a treasure chest of 19th century bushcraft, hunting, and trapping methods that can be and are still useful today. Some of the hunting and trapping techniques may be considered illegal today and one can make more money off of trapping today but then again in 1881 there were no income taxes and the dollar was still on the gold standard.

$10.00 for an otter pelt was not bad, but still, if fur companies paid for furs back then what they pay today a lot of them old time trappers would have been living in the lap of luxery. This book is an excellent look back into a era where things were a little less complicated.

This makes for interesting reading because it was originally published in 1881 and offers a flavor of what a trappers life was like back in the primitive wilderness. The information provided seems technically sound and not outdated; in fact it sounds like the voice of solid experience. It is mainly about trapping but also describes how to build a log cabin or a canoe, what camping suppliers should be carried and much more.

The traps are described in detail such that you can easily understand them. The knowledge in this book will improve the survival skills of any Outdoorsman as the ability to trap meat would be essential to extended survival. I recommend this for anyone interested in Trapping, or who has a lot of survival experience, or just interest and wants to pick up some new information that is not available in most books.
