Everyone Needs A Good Shelter in the Woods!

Enjoy this unabridged, high-quality Doublebit Legacy reprint of Shelters, Shacks, and Shanties: Dan Beard's classic book on cabin life. Dive into hundreds of illustrations of everything ranging from rustic shelters to deluxe cabins and furnishings. Includes descriptions and histories of every conceivable permanent shelter built for the wilds, from Native American permanent housing to wilderness survival lean-tos. Brush up on your bushcraft skills and build a temporary shelter, find ideas for a fun weekend scout lashing or rope pioneering project, or get inspiration for your future escape home in the woods.

Includes descriptions, illustrations, and history on the following types of shelters: Native American permanent homes; log cabins for leisure, hunting, fishing; bark and paper-based shacks; fallen tree and lean-to shelters; cave shelters; sod houses; sawed and hewn timber shanties; floating and water shacks; pole houses and permanent camps; and tree houses.

Also includes instruction and rich illustrations on how to furnish rustic cabins, as well as the woods tools and axemanship skills necessary to construct each of the shelters described within the book. Learn from "Uncle Dan" Beard, the great woodsman who trained thousands of boys and girls in the ways of the woods and who was instrumental in the formation of the Boy Scouts in the USA!

Written by "Uncle" D.C. (Dan) Beard, an authority on outdoors life and woodcraft in the late 1800s-early 1900s. Dan Beard was well respected among America's youth, having written multiple instruction manuals for children on how to have fun in the outdoors and maybe make a little trouble along the way. Many of his tips and ideas for woods life still ring true today. Dan Beard was a key founder in the Boy Scouts movement in America and contributed a significant amount of time and written material to develop its program (including this book).

This classic book makes a perfect gift for cabin fanatics, bushcrafters or wilderness survival enthusiasts, scouts or scout leaders, or any outdoorser who wants to build (or dream of building!) a rustic home in the woods.
