To restore men's rightful heritage, Denis Boyles and Gregg Stebben, the coauthors of A Man's Life: The Complete Instructions, have compiled a priceless treasury of forgotten lore and rustic hobbies that our forefathers possessed but that we have lost. Culled from turn-of-the-century publications and old scouting-type manuals, this guide is written in our grandfathers' language, with their sensibility and wisdom. Since the outdoors is one place where almost all good advice is old advice, the focus is on a man's life lived outdoors camping, hunting, and fishing. With these instructions and advice, man can once again learn how to build a fly fishing rod, shoot a rifle with both eyes open, hit a flying target, start a fire without matches, travel light - but right, keep cool when lost, splice a rope, catch a pig, predict the weather from the color of the sky, rescue someone drowning, send a smoke signal, track a bobcat or a moose, build a log cabin, buy and sort fishing hooks, make a canoe, choose the perfect tent, plan a one-day hike, play golf on a five-acre meadow ... and much, much more. With its mix of essential and extraordinary vintage wisdom, The Lost Lore of a Man's Life is a must for every man's back pocket and backpack.
