Reprinted from the turn-of-the-20th-century original, this abundantly illustrated primer charmingly covers everything from site selection (avoid bogs) to factors to consider when deciding what trees to cut for logs and when to fell them, various building techniques, and even how to build any furnishings for your cabin you may desire, from a three-legged stool to a full bedstead -- including making a mattress from bearhide and stuffing it with pine needles.
