At the turn of the twentieth century, an age of booming technology and a rapid reduction of the outdoors, wildlife enthusiast Ernest Thompson Seton called for a renewed interest in outdoor living. If the nation was in need of a dose of nature then, we could certainly benefit from Seton’s expert guidance today. With this book, you’ll learn to:
Build a campfire, dam, or birch basket
Recognize animal tracks, constellations, and all manner of forestry
Spot the differences between poisonous plants and edible berries
Remedy everything from common cuts and wounds to life-threatening snakebites
And much more!
Combining scientific knowledge with Native American wisdom and practices, this guide is essential for Boy Scouts, their pack leaders, and any guides leading outdoor treks. It’s also a great read for any outdoors lover who is looking for a fuller experience of nature.
