* A note from Dave:
Another book from John and Geri McPherson. While this one doesn’t cover any primitive skills, it does show in detail how they built a large cabin from local cedar trees. Their hard work paid off with a nice cabin overlooking a lake for less than most people pay for a foundation. With a few common tools you can build a comfortable hunting cabin, weekend getaway or whatever you can imagine.
