Thomas J. Elpel extensively researched self-reliance skills, including fishing by hand, cooking edible plants, felting with wool, and making stone knives, wooden containers, willow baskets, and cordage. Though many of these skills were perfected centuries ago, modern students and teachers will find them innovative and fresh. Nearly 200 photographs and sketches demonstrate these outdoor skills.
