Primitive Technology: A Book of Earth Skills

Whittaker , Paperback. This book is not for beginners but has a real depth of knowledge.

Not many step by step instructions, but if you already have a base of bushcraft or primitive skills there are lots of nuggets in here to inspire you. The chapter on making bone blades and tool points was very useful to me.

Great atlatl info also. Get into the woods and experiment! If you are curious about what primitive technology is about this book will give you a good introduction. Lots of cool drawings and pics but don't expect step by step, hand held instructions for the multitude of topics covered in this compilation. If you don't know much about this stuff then some vocabulary may be new to you such as atlatls, celt, haft, biface, pecking and the list goes on.

It was new for me but I found that my interests grew deeper and soon found myself downloading books on flintknapping did I have money for that? Inspirational in so many regards with some reasonable instruction from pics and words combined but I think these articles were intended for those with some background in the subject. Many short articles with great tidbits for the outdoorsman.

A taste of this and a flavor of that by leading authorities whose expertise is compiled into one book. I recommend it highly not only for the curious but the outdoorsman, survivalist and tinkerer!

I love that little knife in the middle foreground on the cover! First off, If you want a book that details how to start learning earth skills This isn't your book, This book is for individuals who already have somewhat of a grasp of the basics and are looking for ideas and ways to perfect their skills Example; While it doesn't detail all the ways to learn friction fire It does provide subtle nuances to the various methods of primitive firecraft that when applied, will enhance and improve your firemaking experience.

Look to this book after you have a solid foundation, and use it to take your abilities even higher.

Good book. That being said, if you want something to get started with or expand some basics, this is a good place to start. One person found this helpful.

These are the same American Archaeologists who had to learn to replicate methods in order to better know the artifacts and findings that occur in their careers. They know their stuff. The chapter about throwing sticks is very well-written with a lot of first-hand information and know-how.

Besides, it includes some practical, useful how-to's for outdoormen and enthusiasts of primitive weapons. Another chapter about other hand-thrown weapons are good too but I was expecting more from the part about atlatls. In general, it is a good reference book that should be kept in the library. I thumbed through it.. The giftee loved it! An excellent book with clear illustrations to help in the process of making tools and other primitive articles.

Section 4 on Fibers has an excellent overview on cordage and covers other fiber preparations.

Every phase of primitive skills are covered and explained fully. The net tying was most helpful to me, because I always tend to go into the wrong direction. The illustration on page was most helpful, as is the entire book along with primitive hunting and fine tuning throwing skills. See all 42 reviews.
