5.0 out of 5 stars From pre-history to the present: the wonder of the log fire, 25 Mar. 2014

This review is from: The Wood Fire Handbook (Hardcover)
I am lucky enough to own a small wood and I am an enthusiastic wood burner. My daughter, knowing of my interest, bought me this book as a birthday present and reading it has been a delight. The world of the wood burner offers a practical introduction to nature and an escape from dull and passive modern life. And Vincent Thurkettle, in his brilliant book, provides all you need to know about trees, logs and techniques of felling, splitting and chopping wood.

Wood burning requires the processing of logs by the very best physical activity, with no expensive gym fees, and producing the practical benefit of heating your home. It may not be to everyone's taste and it does involve hard physical activity. But for those who develop an enthusiasm they will discover a satisfaction which may surprise them. I grew up watching my grandfather, who cut logs as a routine, and I had already absorbed many of the lessons in this book. This merely added to my pleasure in seeing these confirmed, refined and added to with information unknown to me. The book is written with passion and it shows. I loved it.
