oes not go into much detail could be better
This review is based off the previous review, yes I agree it's a basic understanding of what bush crafting is ( wood crafting is the correct term ) The book is a no nonsense, straight to the point book for beginners as what I am/was, at the time of reading if you have no idea what bush Crafting is it may seem a bit over whelming but what I find is that if you read a chapter than goto his YouTube videos they can be used to further explain What he's talking about. If your new to the art than this is a great book as a foot in the door.
Exactly what it claims to be - an introduction to bushcraft. A good read, but by no means an exhaustive reference. Considering how impressive his YouTube videos are, I expected more, which is why only 3 stars.
