    Hello all,

    My wife pick up a new book for me and I am absolutely loving it. I'm sure this is old news for you all but I haven't known about Nessmuk before reading this. (isbn: 978-0-7624-6553-8)

    Thank you for looking,

    Coyote

    That is a beautiful looking reprint of a classic. A great addition to a bushcraft library.

    "Woodcraft and Camping" should be your next read.

    You have yourself a classic. Mine is on the headboard of our bed, which is a book case. I can reach it at any time for reference. (Really never leave the bed :confused: )

    I have a copy of "Woodcraft and Camping" would it be worth buying this one too? Or is it basically the same material?

    Absolutely add it to your collection. "Forest Life" is a collection of stories and musings found in other publications. Also available for Kindle.

    Let us be thankful that there are still thousands of cool, green nooks besides crystal springs, where the weary soul may hide for a time, away from debts, duns, and deviltries, and a while commune with nature. - GWS

    Great book, I got one recently used but in decent shape for a few dollars and also found Forest Life at my local bookshop.
