One of my all time favorite bushcraft books.


Hi all,

This is one of my all time favorite bushcraft books. Mors Kochanski has taught all the greats like Ray Mears, Cody Lundin and Patrick Mcglinchey.

This book is full of charming drawings of a woodsman going about making all sorts of brilliant stuff.
This book is aimed at being comfortable in the northern forests with an axe and a knife. There are chapters on firecraft, axecraft, bindcraft and more.

Although the book is based in North america, it is very applicable to other places too. Good bushcraft skills apply everywhere and there is considerable cross reference between skills used in the jungle and skills used in the temperate forest. Friction fire lighting is a good example.

I love the style of writing which seems to be like a good teacher teaching a student insider tips.

Get it and you will find that you refer to it often. If you have this book I would love to know what you think of it.

You can get it here and its only £7. I think I paid full price for mine when i bought it years ago, raging!
