Lighting Grandma's Fire Mountain Skills and Valley Pastimes by Bill Cunningham
Have you ever wanted to make a pair of Indian mocassins, cook in a dutch oven or make a pair of snowshoes? These and a dozen of other crafts are described by the author as well as "How to Light Grandma's Fire"--the old-fashion way. Bill Cunningham also includes an extensive list of suppliers who can provide those hard to find old-fashioned materials.
Bill Cunningham is uniquely qualified to write about old-time skills. He grew up in a remote part of Maine and later became an authority on mountain man skills and clothing. He has written three adventure novels: Rocky Mountain Tough, Rocky Mountain Brave and Rocky Mountain Proud and has also written a coffee table book about the fur trade reenactment.
