Electronic book shelf.....

Winter survival course handboom, survival manual, survival guide- US Marines
Chainmail made easy
Infectious prevention
Modern rustic
Fish and game cookbook- Scott
Retreat security and small unit tacticals- Kobler &Goodwin
Captin Cook'' Journals
Vaughans vegetable cookbook
Culinary herbs
Handwork in wood
And many on permiculture and edible forests

These are just a few.

I find i learn best from watching, doing. Hands on. So I enjoy Dave Canterbury, Ray Mears, and especially Dick Proenneke. There are more, of corse, but again these are my favorites. I have been learning weaving and llook forward to those fruits of labor.

I just found a copy of Samual Hearne's book on Gutenberg. Very excited! His careful study and account of the practices of those in the northern regions are legendary.

Has anyone read Dave Canterbury's Bushcraft 101? Thoughts if so.

I have it and its a good solid starter book. For those of us who have been doing this for a while it is redundant information but I will say I wish I had a book like this when I was getting started. There is good info in it. It is full of illustrations not pictures though and though they are good I prefer real pics. Jessie if you want to borrow it let me know I can meet you one day and hand it off. i will be up in the area this weekend If you would like to borrow it. It was good enough I am planning on getting the next one which is supposed to be a more advanced book.
