View Full Version : Cheap bushcraft book ??
Im going to order a Bahco Laplander from Amazon as they seem to be the cheapest source.
To take advantage of the free P&P i need to make the order up to £19.00 or over so i was having a look at some cheap bushcraft books.
Bushcraft by Mors Kochanski
Wildwood Wisdom by Ellsworth Jaeger
Woodcraft by "Nessmuk"
Camping and Woodcraft by Horace Kephart
Anyone care to make a recommendation from these or suggest an alternative.
I have the RM books.
I have all of those books and they are all fantastic reads, you will probably prefer Mors book 1st then work your self through the others! :shock: :naughty:
Yep, start with Mors book.
Then Ellsworth's :wink:
Those Laplanders are an amazing price from Amazon!!!!
they`re all worth getting ,wildwood wisdom has got a real old timey feel to it like the books you read as a kid,camping and woodcraft is packed with alsorts of info "how to rid them damn chiggers" nessmuk is cool but coukld have more and mors :You_Rock_ , get them all you know you want too :wink:
if you want very detailed, very practical know-how, get mors' book. it's a must have. if you already have mears' bushcraft, there's a fair amount of overlap, but worth having anyway.
if you want style, inspiration and a really really good read, go with nessmuk. the info's there, but you do have to pay attention. it's a must have, for character.
if you want a wealth of old timey info, but in a quite dry not too entertaining style, you need kephart. it's a substantial reference tome.
if you want old timey info in a cutesy slightly frightening way, mr jaeger's your man. there are probably other books you'd want before this one.
as someone already said, you will get them all eventually, and you will. :o):
Bushcraft by Mors Kochanski.
Nothing to doubt about - you won't be disappointed !
I agree on Bushcraft by Kochanski
Many thanks guy's
Great price on Amazon.
I find the problem with Amazon is if they haven't got everything you want they hang on to your order till they have.
I've been waiting over a month for an Order I put in.
Make sure they have everything you want if you are in a hurry for it.
But then you can always pay extra postage and they will send stuff as they get it
But me being a Yorkshireman makes me wait and moan about it :naughty:
Tell me about it ,i waited 4 months for a copy of a Philip Johnson book (book was £65.00 at the time) it arrived with a damaged cover and it took another 2 months for a replacement to came.
By the time it arrived i had lost interest in it!!
