Woodcraft And Indian Lore
"I should like to lead this whole nation into the way of living outdoors," wrote Ernest Seton over seventy-five years ago. If the nation was in need of a dose of nature then, we can certainly benefit even more from Seton's sage advice now. Learn how to build a campfire, a dam, or a birch bark basket; to recognize animal tracks, constellations, and all manner of forestry; to stop a nose-bleed, ease poison ivy, or soothe a sore throat with natural remedies; to make delicious biscuits on the trail and spot edible mushrooms; and more. This book is essential for Boy Scouts and their leaders, and great fun for anyone desiring a fuller experience of outdoors life.
       About the Author: Ernest Thompson Seton is a founder of the Boy Scouts of America. He was also an award-winning wildlife illustrator, spell-binding storyteller, bestselling author, and strong advocate for the political, cultural, and spiritual rights of First Peoples (Native Americans).
List Price: $ 9.99
