Abstract:

"How did North American Indians stay alive in the days before European contact? How did they hunt, trap, prepare food, travel, make clothing, build shelters, and treat their sick and wounded, all within the limits of a largely stone-age society? Survival Skills of the North American Indians presents detailed practical answers to these questions, along with diagrams that will enable the reader to imitate Indian methods and techniques. Author Peter Goodchild draws his information largely from scholarly sources, with some corroboration from his own experiments. The result is a survival manual of a highly unusual kind, as well as a meticulous and fascinating work of scholarship."--Provided by publisher.
