Wilderness Axe Skills & Campcraft door Paul Kirtley. The book starts with how to select the correct tools for the task, caring for the tools, then applying everyday axe techniques. Next, the book presents larger scale tasks such as felling, limbing, and sectioning trees, before progressing onto skills for smaller-scale, more refined projects, including carving techniques. While much of what is in the book is directly applicable in and around camp, the final chapter is dedicated to woodland campcraft, including campcraft projects large and small. The aim is for you to be able to develop effective and timesaving campcraft skills using materials freely available in the woods, including pot hangers, tripods, cranes, and a variety of group camp set-ups.
