Description
How did native North Americans solve the problems of daily living with no metal tools, little settled architecture, and a habitat that, for vast stretches of the continent and much of the year, is inhospitably cold, dry, or hot? Illustrated throughout with precise drawings and a few photographs, this review of Native American life skills describes how people harvested plants for food and medicine, and provides step-by-step instructions for crafting tools, shelter, clothing, and other devices with the native materials and techniques.

"The most comprehensive skills book I've found—my textbook of choice for my Native Lifeway classes. It is unique in that it presents skills in relation to habitat and culture, then hones in on an array of specific skill, giving accurate and detailed technical information, along with regional adaptations."—Tamarack Song
