Another book by Gil that is easy to understand and read. If Gil wrote it, it is worth buying. Proven methods that work!

Clear to read.
Images are enough to understand how to build snowshoe.
It would be interesting to learn more about natives who uses each kind of snowshoe.

Building Wooden Snowshoes & Snowshoe Furniture March 23 2011

Great book. I do a lot of back country snow camping, skiing and snowboarding in Australia and will modify some of these designs to suite our local conditions.
Very thorough and to the point explanations, pictures and diagrams , well written craft/technical book-- also some really great furniture ideas--can't wait to get started.
Great book for those who want to learn the lost craft of snowshoe making June 4 2014

This book describes the process of traditional snowshoe construction that can be very helpful. I have found that making traditional snowshoes is a tedious process and is not for everyone. It is much easier and cheaper to buy a pair of snowshoes. Those that choose to learn this dying craft are to be commended. If you want to construct your own traditional snowshoes this is the book. Proper wood selection is key in bending shoes with a rounded toe, strips split from green ash and shaped, then steamed offers the best result, while sawed ash lumber that has been kiln dried is more difficult to bend without splitting. I found the easiest snowshoe to build out of this book is the Ojibwa which requires two strips of ash per shoe. Good luck, be patient, the end result is worth it!!!!!
