Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Reprint of the Scribner edition of 1914 with hundreds of pen and ink drawings. A charming anachronism (the Forest Service would frown on such prodigal use of trees and their branches). Beard was a founder of Boy Scouts of America. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Quick and interesting read for any outdoorsman

Lots of good info on building temporary sheltets from hovels to small cabins. Also boys' (and girls') shelters (clubhouses) and hunting platforms/blinds. Ranging from quick overnighters to shelters for a season.

Very informative on historical woodcraft. Careful reading gives great information about native influences and customs. It also relates well the sociology of the time and provides supurb descriptions of the proper handling and use of tools.
