Shelters, Shacks, and Shanties

Shelters, Shacks, and Shanties: An Illustrated Guide to Wilderness Survival

In Shelters, Shacks, and Shanties, Daniel Beard, an early leader of the Boy Scouts of America, teaches readers how to build a large variety of practical shelters using either a hatchet or an ax. There are over 50 different shelters described, including lean-tos, teepees, hogans, bark houses, a sod house, stilt houses, tree houses, one room log cabins, and large log houses. 332 illustrations that detail the construction of the shelters make this an excellent book for all ages.

Daniel Carter Beard was an American illustrator, author, youth leader, and social reformer who founded the Sons of Daniel Boone in 1905, which Beard later merged with the Boy Scouts of America.
