Bush Craft by Mors Kochanski

This book is a must read for most all bushcrafters out there in the world. I can't lie, it's not an easy read. It is packed (PACKED) with information and pretty well requires you to take action every other page. It's that full of stuff to know. I am on read #2 and still making notes. On the flip side of this, it is 100% business. If you're looking for a good story of the woods experience, this isn't your book. Still, it's packed with illustrations and info. So, to it then:

  • Readability - 4 of 5 - It's well written and about as easy to read as a text book on a subject you want to learn.
  • Editing - 5 of 5 - superb work editing this book. Flow is very well done.
  • Subject Matter - 5 of 5 - Seriously, a must read for anyone looking to spend time out of doors in that dirt-timey sort of way.
  • Did I like it - 4 of 5 - I liked it a lot. It's a dry read but I find that I can use most all of it.

I'll say it again, a must read for any wood-be outdoorsman / bushcrafter / survivalist / etc. This book is a wealth of knowledge. Worth every dime in my opinion.
