Overview

You don't have to be Paul Bunyan to build a wilderness home. In fact, you don't even need an ax, and nails are not an absolute necessity. What you'll need is Wilderness Shelters, the definitive guide to building log cabins, camping shelters, blockhouses, and more. Here are illustrated instructions for everything from felling trees to splitting logs, from laying foundations to insulating roofs. The book also shows you how to fashion indoor and outdoor furniture for your rustic retreat, including tables, benches, bookcases, beds, and ice chambers. And it teaches you to obtain food from nature and dine in comfort. With its wealth of ideas, Wilderness Shelters shows that wilderness living can be more efficient than gadget-ridden urban lifestyles.
