From the Back Cover
Assuming no previous experience from the fort builder, the book starts with the basics for kids and their parents: how to buy lumber, and essential skills such as sawing and nailing. It includes a brief history of forts and more than twenty projects ranging from the simple (a blanket and table fort) to the more challenging (a stockade fort). The book even includes forts made of snow, sand, or branches. An accessories section features projects that can be made in just a few hours, such as a flag, catapult, periscope, cannon, and water balloon launcher.
