bb143 Log Cabins – An adventure in Self Reliance
Almost every man (women are saner) dreams, at least once in his life, of getting away from it all, deep into the woods, and going it alone. Expert tracker and woodsman Len McDougall shows us the way in The Log Cabin, an extraordinary blend of how-to manual and memoir of resilience that will surely fascinate, perhaps repel, and maybe even inspire the reader to take a chance on a little more self-reliance-if not in the woods, then in everyday living.
Like a rougher modern-day Thoreau in less bucolic surrounds, Len McDougall takes the path of solitude, marching to his own drummer, and finds himself, like Thoreau, at once in awe of the phenomena of nature-large and small-and ever more aware of his essential separation from nature and from civilization.
Len McDougall has written several books and dozens of articles on topics relating to the outdoors. Len teaches outdoor survival and has more than 30 years experience in the North Woods. Len is also a professional photographer and illustrator.
