Description

In a single, remarkable volume renowned naturalist, writer, artist, and lecturer Ernest Thompson Seton presents one of the most comprehensive guides to the outdoors ever written. Within these pages are instructions and anecdotes -- some expected, some delightfully unanticipated -- on every sort of outdoor art and craft and country living skill. You'll learn how to distinguish edible plants from poisonous ones; make fire by rubbing sticks; craft a bow and arrow, thongs, buttons, and birdhouses; read sign language; recognize forest trees, wildflowers, animals, birds, and constellations; tie a variety of knots; and much, much more.Illustrated generously throughout with the author's own pen-and-ink drawings, this essential outdoor handbook is both an important piece of American history and useful tool in preserving and communing with nature.show more
