This special edition of "Shelters, Shacks and Shanties" was written by Daniel Beard Carter, and first published in 1914. This book explores useful, potentially-life-saving skills to use in the wilderness, for recreation or for survival. This incredible book could literally save your life! If you enjoy recreating in the mountains, gadding about in the Great Outdoors, and are a generally outdoorsy-type, you need this book! Chapters include Where to Find Mountain Goose, The Half-Cave Shelter, How to Make a Fallen Tree Shelter, Indian Shacks and Shelters, A Sawed-Lumber Shanty, The Bog Ken, How to Build Elevated Shacks, Shanties and Shelters, How to Use an Axe, Notched Log Ladders, Fireplaces and the Art of Tending the Fire, and many more. This amazing old is now over one hundred years old, but is just as useful today as it was then - perhaps even more so, since a lot of these skills are not known by most of us today.
