The smallest boys can build some of the simple shelters and the older boys can build the more difficult ones. The reader may, if he likes, begin with the first of the book, build his way through it, and graduate by building the log houses; in doing this he will be closely following the history of the human race, because ever since our arboreal ancestors with prehensile toes scampered among the branches of the pre-glacial forests and built nestlike shelters in the trees, men have made themselves shacks for a temporary refuge.

Daniel C. Beard, author of The American Boys' Handy Book, wrote and illustrated this classic book in 1914. There are 338 pen-and-ink drawings, along with instructions, for a wide range of basic shelters. Of special interest to people living in the country, or to anyone thinking of putting up a simple roof overhead.
