The Ax Book is a thorough guide to cutting wood with hand tools. The author explains how to use various types of axes, hatchets, mauls, saws and wedges to take down trees and prepare firewood. In addition he shows every aspect of dealing with wood from the forest right to the hearth or stove. Author, Dudley Cook, of Waterboro, Maine, tells the reader a certain amount about himself. He has evidently worked in the woods a great deal, having learned to use an ax and the other tools of the woodsman as a boy growing up in a small New England town in the 1930s. He doesn't say whether, in writing The Ax Book, he found he had taken on a longer journey than he had expected; but if so, he was equal to the task, and his reader gain by the bargain.

Illustrations are by S. Lawrence Whipple

Paperback 144 pages, 8.50"x 11"
