About this title:
To the rescue comes Denis Boyles, columnist for Men's Health magazine, with a priceless treasury of forgotten lore and dozens of projects designed to rekindle that dying ember of machismo. Culled from U.S. government pamphlets, turn-of-the-century publications and old scouting manuals, this guide to lost lore contains projects on camping, hunting and fishing, farming and much more. Such skills as sending smoke signals, tracking a bobcat or moose, turning a bike into a steam-powered motorcycle and building a cozy log cabin are all included. In a world full of mama's boys, The Lost Lore of a Man's Life is the ultimate guide to reclaiming a man's lost heritage.
Review: You may be an Internet whiz and gas grill gourmet, but chances are you haven't a clue about starting a fire without matches, splicing a rope, catching a pig, building a log cabin, making a canoe, sending smoke signals, or quacking like a duck. Do you need these skills? If you're going camping for the first time, maybe yes. But even if you don't require camping rations for a party of four strong men (125 pounds worth, says Denis Boyles), this compendium, culled from turn-of-the-century publications and old scouting-type manuals, is a genuine treasury of forgotten lore.
