Topics include basic facts and principles for hide workers, correct ways to skin animals for hide preservation, stretching and curing hides, handling skins and hides, storing and shipping furs, making fur robes and native american clothing, tools of the hideworker and taxidermist, tanning materials, formulas, and recipes, soaking/fleshing/degreasing skins, working with small and light furs and heavy furs alike, deer skins and buckskin preparation, sheep and goat skins, and fur dyeing.

Decorate your cabin space or hunting lodge in the traditional way, or even enjoy your fur specimens in your home (if your family lets you!).

This vintage book includes timeless knowledge about animal skin preservation and taxidermy methods, which have largely been lost to time, but never forgotten by the old masters. This book makes a great gift for new and veteran hunters, taxidermists, outsoorspeople, bushcrafters, survivalists, campers, and cabin enthusiasts. Although this book represents thought from a former time, it also reveals much about the rich history of taxidermy and natural history study of animals via specimens, and many of the tips, tricks, and discussions are still relevant for study today!
