The Handy Book was then - and now again is - a brim-full collection of guidance on an immensity of subjects, ranging from knot tying to boat-making, to outdoor survival without appropriate gear.

This book would be a great gift to any family looking to do something on a weekend other than watch TV. Books like this should be on the required reading list in elementary schools, not some of the garbage that's there now.
