Sinopsis: Time was, a man had to know certain things in this life. He had to use his callused hands and the knowledge passed down through the generations to carve a homestead from the wilderness and to feed his family by hunting and trapping animals or coaxing crops from the earth. But today, as men trade hammer and ax for computer and fax, and a cabin in the woods for a place in the burbs, these manly skills are in danger of disappearing forever.

To the rescue comes Denis Boyles, columnist for Men's Health magazine, with a priceless treasury of forgotten lore and dozens of projects designed to rekindle that dying ember of machismo. Culled from U.S. government pamphlets, turn-of-the-century publications and old scouting manuals, this guide to lost lore contains projects on camping, hunting and fishing, farming and much more. Such skills as sending smoke signals, tracking a bobcat or moose, turning a bike into a steam-powered motorcycle and building a cozy log cabin are all included. In a world full of mama's boys, The Lost Lore of a Man's Life is the ultimate guide to reclaiming a man's lost heritage.

Críticas: You may be an Internet whiz and gas grill gourmet, but chances are you haven't a clue about starting a fire without matches, splicing a rope, catching a pig, building a log cabin, making a canoe, sending smoke signals, or quacking like a duck. Do you need these skills? If you're going camping for the first time, maybe yes. But even if you don't require camping rations for a party of four strong men (125 pounds worth, says Denis Boyles), this compendium, culled from turn-of-the-century publications and old scouting-type manuals, is a genuine treasury of forgotten lore.
