One of the most basic of wilderness living and survival skills, the building of a shelter takes on many forms. In this book noted primitive skills instructors John & Geri McPherson illustrate the making of not just quickie overnight survival shelters but what has been in the past real houses for our ancestors. They describe just what a shelter is, what for it’s purpose and why. Four shelters are built – each from natural materials commonly found throughout the world; sticks, grasses, rocks, sod – and more. Location is discussed, frameworks built and walls and roofs constructed. All protect you from the rain and allow interior fires. Every stage is shown and explained in detail.
