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.

From the Back Cover:

To restore men's rightful heritage, Denis Boyles and Gregg Stebben, the coauthors of A Man's Life: The Complete Instructions, have compiled a priceless treasury of forgotten lore and rustic hobbies that our forefathers possessed but that we have lost. Culled from turn-of-the-century publications and old scouting-type manuals, this guide is written in our grandfathers' language, with their sensibility and wisdom. Since the outdoors is one place where almost all good advice is old advice, the focus is on a man's life lived outdoors camping, hunting, and fishing. With these instructions and advice, man can once again learn how to build a fly fishing rod, shoot a rifle with both eyes open, hit a flying target, start a fire without matches, travel light - but right, keep cool when lost, splice a rope, catch a pig, predict the weather from the color of the sky, rescue someone drowning, send a smoke signal, track a bobcat or a moose, build a log cabin, buy and sort fishing hooks, make a canoe, choose the perfect tent, plan a one-day hike, play golf on a five-acre meadow ... and much, much more. With its mix of essential and extraordinary vintage wisdom, The Lost Lore of a Man's Life is a must for every man's back pocket and backpack.
