This is truly a unique, informative and entertaining little book all about making walking sticks using Blackthorn - full of technical advice and tips (from plant identification to the finished product) to help you regardless of your level of expertise in this field. It's the kind of book you would be more likely to find tucked away on a shelf in a musty smelling second-hand bookshop - Truly delightful!

Chatty little book!! Welcomes you into the life of the author and quite unputdownable once you start to read it!! Lots of interesting little snippets from a chatterbox author who enjoys chattering about the old way of life. I enjoyed this book!! Havn't started to make any blackthorn walking sticks yet although when I read this book I always intend to get around to it one of these days if I can just get up the energy to go hoking in hedges for the blackthorns that is!!

Although written many years ago this reprint is an excellent read and has lots of interesting tips for blackthorn hunters. Have now been able to source several useful pieces of blackthorn due to being able too clearly identify the tree.

Good book for anyone looking for info on making there own blackthorn walking sticks. Stick straightening technique was of particular help to me. Great pictures to help Identify the plant correctly, and interesting "lore" concerning the plants history.
