||5" x 8"
Daniel C. Beard, one of the founders of the Boy Scouts of America, wrote and illustrated numerous books on the outdoors, including The American Boy's Handy Book, a classic best-seller with over 300,000 copies in print.
Shelters, Shacks, and Shanties was written and illustrated by Beard in 1914. It has 338 pen and ink drawings, along with instructions for a wide range of shelters, from the simplest and most basic structures built with nothing but a hatchet to gradually more elaborate constructions using an axe. It’s addressed to “boys of all ages” and is of special interest to homesteaders or anyone else thinking about putting a simple roof overhead.
