Primitive Technology: A Book of Earth Skills
The best from the pages of the Bulletin of Primitive Technology

      Primitive Technology includes reprints of valuable articles from back issues of the Bulletin of Primitive Technology that are no longer in print, plus many new and descriptive additions that have never been seen before.

      Due to the high cost of reproduction for single issues of the Bulletin and the demand from new members for access to this valuable information, the Society of Primitive Technology has produced this special edition of Primitive Technology. This book contains the outstanding writing, photo essays and charts that are found in each issue of the Bulletin. Plus the Editor has added many new sidebars and tidbits of information never before published by the Society. It's a true collector's item for every member of the Society of Primitive Technology or any person who wants to learn more about primitive camping, primitive crafts, outdoor survival, primitive living, and stone-age wilderness survival skills. 1999. 248 Pages. Cost $25.
