This is the book that I learned from when I was young. I have read many outdoor skills book, but this is still by far the best. I tried to get a copy for my kids because the many pictures make it easy to understand but it was out of print and hard to get. It was out of favour for a while because we had "newer materials and technologies now", but I have been in the wilderness where I didn't have those new gadgets handy, and knowing how to get by with what was around me made all the difference. It doesn't just show one way of doing things, it shows several ways, drawn from different parts of the country, so you can choose what works best in your area. I am so glad that it is back in print now, that I am getting copies for all of my outdoors friends.

This book is very informative. It touches upon all aspects of survival in the woods. Starting with basics of shelter and the finer details including furniture and tools.
There are many diagrams with patterns and measurements to follow which are easy to duplicate. The techniques in this book would be excellent in teaching a survival class to youth or adults.
There are also many nature craft ideas coming from the Native American background. These ideas would do well in a cultural art class.
I have had the chance to see this book in a previous print which was very old. The newer version is quite like the old one and proves to be just as good.

If you can get your hands on this book it will be worth it. This book contains "lost" information that was used during the early days of American exploration and indian occupation on survival techniques, from making stone knives and tomahawks to leather jerkins and wooden canoes--and more, such as how to use "natural" compasses. Very educational.

This is the first book I took out of a library c.1952. It is still pivitol in the way I think and do things. Jaeger is most entertaining and inspiring. His illustrations are magic. This is the ultimate book on making things for the right reasons.

This book is jam packed with useful information for anyone interested in bushcrafting! I absolutely love the patterns/breakdowns of traditional Native clothing. Great stuff!
