Publisher's Summary

Have you always wondered about the construction process after looking at the primitive shelters built out in the middle of nowhere?

Do the structures resurrected in the green forest always leave you spellbound?

Does the idea of making a home in the wilderness lead to a string of other questions, such as the feasibility and survivability of living in the wilderness?

If these things pique your curiosity, then this book is designed precisely for you.

Bushcraft: How to Make a House in the Wilderness gives answers to all your curiosities and much more. It is the only book you will need to take you from understanding the multi-layered natural wilderness, the associated concept of bushcraft, and the philosophy behind the idea - that is, "growth" over survival.

This book does not focus on just the survival principles in the wilderness; rather, it also ventures into discovering the true bushcraft essence by concentrating on how to thrive in the wilderness. The organized chapter layout unlocks the essential skills in an extremely simplified manner to enhance interest and engagement. 

Years of experience in the wilderness allowed the author to emulate his perspective in a flowing narrative that is not too dense for the beginners and elementary level listeners. The book is designed in an exploratory way so that you can learn the skills at your own pace.

Informative and complete

From knots to building shelter and animal traps, this book has everything you need to survive in the bush (North American bush anyways - I don't know about tropical rain forests or African savannas). It's very easy instructive reading with lots of pictures

This is a great place to start

I've read most of this book and it is a very comprehensive reference for bushcraft learning if you're the rank novice or an experienced woodsman. It covers the basics of everything you may need to know about taking care of yourself in the bush from shelter building to fire making to equipment to navigation to trapping/processing game to tree identification. There are four different appendices at the end for further reference.

Bought this for my 11 year old granddaughter because she loves the outdoors and this is packed with a world of knowledge that will be useful in the future. She has already used the knowledge she has learned and given me demonstrations on the river at our house.

Great book packed full of good information

This book has lots of great information. I've been camping, hunting, trapping, and fishing for years. The information in this book just added to what I already had in my bag of tricks. I recommend it to those wanting to add to what they know, or those trying to learn some useful information about surviving in the outdoors.

Years of bush experience went into this book

A great deal of personal experience went into the writing of this book... Years of bush time. As a result this is a personal recommendation of skills and equipment from one of the most successful wilderness survival school leaders in the world.
