Primitive Technology I: A Book of Earthskills

SKU: PTI
$25.00Price
  • Edited by David Wescott this is part 1 of a compilation from half of the materials available in issues 1-12 of The Bulletin of Primitive Technology.

    Living in modern society, we have become increasingly disassociated from the earth, from the essence of ourselves, and the need is awakened in us to return to the wilderness--physically and emotionally. We long to feel a sense of connection with our ancient roots. This urge is what has prompted man's fascination with primitive skills: producing objects from natural materials using methods similar to prehistoric cultures.
    Primitive Technology: A Book of Earth Skills is a sharing of ideas--the philosophies, the history, and the personal stories by the authorities on primitive technology from the pages of The Bulletin of Primitive Technology.
