From our library:
How to Stay Alive in the Woods by Bradford Angier. 
Angier and his wife Vena left Boston in the late 1940s to homestead in northeastern British Columbia.  With tenacity and luck they repaired an old cabin and taught themselves to hunt and forage wild plants, eventually writing numerous books on the experience.
For serious students of bushcraft and wilderness first aid there are better, more modern texts (we like the SAS Pocket  Survival Guide) but this is nonetheless a handsome, approachable and well-illustrated overview of woodland skills from snare building to celestial navigation. 

One of my favorite books I have in my library. Tons of fun to read.
