How to Catch a Pig by Denis Boyles
Book DescriptionA man should know certain things in his life to be a man. He had to use his callused hands - and the knowledge passed down through the generations - to carve a homestead from the wilderness and to feed his family by hunting and trapping animals or coaxing crops from the earth. But today, as men trade hammer and ax for computer and fax, and a cabin in the woods for a place in the 'burbs, these manly skills are in danger of disappearing. To restore men's rightful heritage, Denis Boyles and Gregg Stebben, the coauthors of "A Man's Life: The Complete Instructions", have compiled a priceless treasury of forgotten lore and rustic hobbies that we have lost.Culled from turn-of-the-century publication and old scouting-type manuals, this guide is written in our grandfathers' language, with their sensibility and wisdom. Since the outdoors is one place where almost all good advice is old advice, the focus is on a man's life lived out-doors camping, hunting, and fishing. "How to Catch a Pig" guarantees a rediscovery of the wonders of the great outdoors for even the most terminally modern among us.
