Disconnect from digital and reconnect with your inner caveman

If there were ever a book to make you switch off the TV, unplug the gaming console and reconnect with nature, Primitive Technology is it. It will teach you the everyday skills that both the expert and the novice will need to craft resources from scratch from your natural surroundings and truly experience the wilderness.

Author Primitive Technology, one of the world’s most authoritative figures, has been going into the bush bare-handed for over 25 years, learning his craft from no master and developing a unique and alien approach to bushcraft not seen anywhere else.

For the first time, John Plant imparts his much sought-after knowledge to show us the fundamental skills needed to build a shelter, from lighting a fire and creating an axe head to crafting a spear and making a kiln. Using step-by-step instructions and practical illustrations, this is a must-have book for anyone who wants to learn a new skill, get outdoors and reconnect with nature like never before.
