Lots of pen and ink drawings -- for anyone who enjoys "the way they used to do it".

From back of book --"a handsome and illuminating view of the resource that made possible so much of the early settlement of North America. . . the special knowledge of which wood was suited to which task, the ready identification of native trees, the reverence for wood, the instinctive knowledge that wood can warm the soul as well as the body -- are being revived by Eric Sloane's work. Section on identification of nearly sixty native trees."

As a luthier, making instruments from all kinds of wood, this one really has a place in my heart.
