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.
