5.0 out of 5 stars The ONLY Shelter Book You Need to Survive!, February 19, 2013
This review is from: Shelters, Shacks, and Shanties: The Classic Guide to Building Wilderness Shelters (Dover Books on Architecture) (Paperback)
As a former Boy Scout, and former Marine, who has spent more time outdoors, both professionally and personally; I can easily say that if you have this one single book, an axe, a file to keep it sharp with, and a shovel; you will NEVER worry about being caught 'off-guard' again.

This book gives dozens of working, strong structures that you can actually build, that WORK, with the information taken from over 100-years of pioneer knowledge. Hogans, cabins, lean-tos, Teepees, shacks, even in-ground hogans and swamp stilt houses. It's all in here, with excellent drawings of how to construct them. Not only is it fun to read the 'old ways', but this is good information that really works.

Get this, read it a few times, put it in a ziplock bag, and throw it in your backpack or survival gear cache with the appropriate gear. You won't regret it, and you won't need a dozen more similar books to fill the gap - this one doesn't have gaps.

Can't recommend it enough. SOLID 5-stars.
