Contains instructions for the construction of shelters, tools, weapons, ropes, and baskets from such basic materials as bone, stone, wood, and plant fibers. The text is accompanied by clear drawings and many photographs. The book's material is largely taken from the pages of The Bulletin of Primitive Technology, of which the author is the managing editor. No index.
