In an effort to start making a contribution to the site I wanted to highlight the availability of a free online version of this book. I have searched the site and have not been able to find any mention of it, which surprises me, so I've probably not looked properly.
So apologies if this is already well known, or in the wrong place.
In essence this is a hunting / trapping / outdoors book, first published in the USA in 1881.
As you would expect much of the traps and equipment had to be made from scratch at that time, although some steel traps were in use. Seems like a prime candidate for the bushcraft library.
I have a printed copy of the book and reprints are relatively easy to obtain of the internet - just make sure you get one with the illustrations. Believe it or not, there are versions that don't have them !
