Reading List

My list of the most important Bushcraft/Woodcraft books (in no particular order:)
  1. Kephart's Camping and Woodcraft
  2. Jaeger's Wildwood Wisdom
  3. Mears' Bushcraft
  4. Kochanski's Bushcraft
  5. Graves' Bushcraft
  6. Nessmuk's Woodcraft and Camping

I once posted my list on BushcraftUK but hadn't, at that point, had any exposure to Ray Mears' books. Now I've seen several of them and feel they are worthy of this list. He puts the final "a-ha!" into some of the things I've been trying to figure out.

There are, of course, many other authors worthy of consideration but I feel these six books best represent the skills and attitude I'm attempting to replicate.

Thanks for reading,
