An understandable guide to key skills for bushcrafters, campers, outdoors lovers, and anyone interested in surviving on the land. No other woodcraft teacher instills outdoor knowledge the way Kirtley does, which has earned him a stellar global reputation. This is the chance to learn from him even if you can't attend his sold-out courses. Everything needed for those seeking eventual serious bushcraft mastery, and also helpful for those who admire bushcraft but simply want to add ease and enjoyment to occasional camping. This is his first book and teaches the core skills from start to finish: selecting the correct tools for the task, caring for the tools, everyday axe techniques, felling, limbing, sectioning, and carving techniques and projects. Next, master efficient and sometimes lifesaving campcraft needs, including pot hangers, tripods, cranes, camp grills, broilers, lanterns, stools, tent needs, essential knots, lashings, ladders, and rope throwing and hoisting. Also features a detailed look at more than a dozen types of wood and their properties, for best choices in all bushcraft needs.
