Overview

Woodcraft and Indian Lore: A Classic Guide from a Founding Father of the Boy Scouts of America by Ernest Thompson Seton


"I should like to lead this whole nation into the way of living outdoors," wrote Ernest Seton over seventy-five years ago. If the nation was in need of a dose of nature then, we can certainly benefit even more from Seton's sage advice now.

Learn how to build a campfire, a dam, or a birch bark basket; to recognize animal tracks, constellations, and all manner of forestry; to stop a nose-bleed, ease poison ivy, or soothe a sore throat with natural remedies; to make delicious biscuits on the trail and spot edible mushrooms; and more. This book is essential for Boy Scouts and their leaders, and great fun for anyone desiring a fuller experience of outdoors life.

The book, Woodcraft and Indian Lore by Ernest Thompson Seton is a huge book, but full of helpful information for those who might camp or want to learn a thing or two while out in the woods. This is packed with crafting ideas, dances, and all different things to cure and help you be a survivor living outdoors. Well, in my opinion, this could help you be ready for any reason, not just a vacation outdoors, but just in case of emergencies. I mean, who wouldn't like to learn a few helpful ideas to help heal or provide protection when you have no home or place to protect you. What else is helpful, even for fishers, or those who love to go outside, the idea to help provide something for snake bites, cuts, and other things is always good to know too! I honestly love that this book is packed with interesting things. Plus, it's got the information and guidance you would get from Boy Scouts. So really at any age, young or old this book can come in handy. I think what I really was interested into was how to build a campfire and learning the different fruits that are actually good for eating and which are poisonous. Plus, I love the information on learning about the stars and the animal tracks. I feel like I'm getting close to nature and learning to be one with the world. Finally, this is a wonderful book and packed, I mean packed with tons of information anyone could use!

This book, from one of the founders of the Boy Scouts of America, should be on the bookshelf of every summer camp, outdoors club, or youth group. From first aid to games to natural history to crafts, any youth leader will quickly find this an indispensable companion. And it's a perfect gift for current or former Boy Scouts!
