Overview

WOODCRAFT BY OWEN JONES AND MARCUS WOODWARD. PREFACE TO SECOND EDITION: WHEN we were writing this book, sometimes we would ask each other, What does woodcraft mean And then there would be a silence while we looked at one another, and tried to think of an explanation, until presently one would say, Never mind-let us write another chapter. So we went on writing about woodoraft till the book was finished. We have done our best to tell of what we know about woodcraft as to what it is, we Ieave it to our book to answer. But we know this about it--there is no subject more fascinating, The better you understand it, the more you rejoice in being alive, the more you long to go on living, and the more you desire to know of life. And though you may know only a little of woodcraft, yet that little will add such a slweetness and interest to life that you will never be dull or without something to think about, provided the open sky is above your head and the wind blows, the sun shines, or the rain beats on your face. We how that woodcraft is the most important of my field of study for the scout. All good scouts must be trained in woodcraft, and by woodcraft all their best qualities scouts will be developed. Even a little knowledge of woodcraft will help you far in life-to find your way through unknown country to steer a true course with or without aid from compass, sun, moon, or stars to pick up and follow a trail to read messages of good news or bad in the movements of birds or animals to solve mysteries and read riddles by clues of bent grasses or stray feathers to foretell weather by the look of the clouds and the feel of the winds and to find water and food... Originally published in 1910. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are now republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
