From Our Editors

If we`re cold, we switch on the heat. If we`re hungry, we go to the supermarket. And if we want to get from point A to point B, we hop in the car. A century ago, most people weren`t so fortunate and had to rely on their ingenuity to ensure their survival. Now you can try your hand at making many of the same things our forefathers and foremothers did, including axes, shelters and canoes in Wildwood Wisdom. Ellsworth Jaeger introduces readers to aspects of pioneer life in this classic 1945 resource.
