Overview

It is a fact to be regretted that we have so few examples of "Boys' Books" published in this country. There are a few English works of this character, that are very excellent as far as they go, but are nevertheless incomplete and unsatisfactory to the wants of American boys, dwelling largely on sports which are essentially English, and merely touching upon or utterly excluding other topics which are of the utmost interest to boys of this country. In no one of these books, so far as the author of the present volume knows, is the subject of Traps considered to any fair extent, and those examples which are given, represent only the most common and universal varieties already known to the general public.

This book is a gem. The comprehensive methods of every day living in the wild combined with specialized knoweldge of trappers from the past, make this an invaluable resource for any library. The methodology covered includes,animal baits,traps,boat and canoe building,shelters and huts. A huge book that you will refer back to many times and be enthralled with the timeless wisdom of the past that you can apply to the here and now. Thumbs up!
