A good book with a lot of info on how to build emergency shelters to log cabins. Good instruction on how to use an axe appropriately. Plus, just fun to read to see how pioneers did things in life to survive.

We plan on building with logs and rock, using the terrain of our property to make a unique home we've been discussing for quite sometime. This book, and several related books, have met our planning and how-to needs!
