A guide to reconnecting with the art of using trees and timber for bushcraft and woodcraft

Woodcraft takes the reader on a very practical learning journey. From the safe use of tools and sustainable harvesting of wood to the subsequent uses for roots, bark and timber, this step-by-step account is suitable for the student of woodcraft, the naturalist and the practitioner of bushcraft skills. If you have ever wanted to make your own bow and arrows, learn to make fire using just friction or discover a wealth of other relevant and traditional uses for wood, then this book will not disappoint you. John Rhyder has taught these skills for over 20 years and delivers the information in a no-nonsense and easy-to-follow guide.
