In its pages are directions for flying paper dragons, stilt-walking, playing dozens of ball games, building doghouses, capturing butterflies and frogs, and much more. Fully illustr

Shelters, shacks, and shanties : the classic guide to building wilderness shelters by Daniel Carter Beard( Book )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This excellent hands-on guide by one of the founders of the Boy Scouts of America contains a wealth of practical instruction and advice on how to build everything from a bark teepee and a tree-top house to a log cabin and a sod house. No professional architects are needed here; and knowing how to use an axe is more important than possessing carpentry skills. More than 300 of the author's own illustrations and a clear, easy-to-follow text enable campers to create such lodgings as half-cave shelters, beaver mat huts, birch bark shacks, over-water camps, a Navajo hogan, and a pole house. Additional chapters provide information on how to use an axe, split and notch logs, make a fireplace, and even build appropriate gateways to log houses, game preserves, ranches, and other open areas. An invaluable book for scouts, campers, hikers, and hunters of all ages, this guide and its fascinating collection of outdoor lore "still has intrinsic value," said Whole Earth Magazine, and will be of keen interest to any modern homesteader
Tom Sawyer abroad ; Tom Sawyer detective by Mark Twain( Book )

4 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These unjustly neglected works are among the most enjoyable of Mark Twain's novels. Tom Sawyer Abroad sets the three characters so popular in Adventures of Huckleberry Finn--Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn, and Jim--and sends them on a balloon trip to Africa. The balloon has wings and fans which can propel it a hundred miles an hour in still air and three hundred miles an hour with a stiff tail wind. Tom is again the manager, the one with information and imagination. Huck is still the one with a literal mind and common sense, and Jim, though the oldest, is once more the most limited in experience and the most burdened by superstition. Tom Sawyer, Detective is not only a detective story but also a burlesque of detective stories. Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn perform throughout as a youthful imitation of the immensely popular Sherlock Holmes, with Huck as a counterpart of Dr. Watson. To everyone's wonderment Tom deduces who the murderer is, and Huck catches the spirit of the whole when he says "Well, sir, if there’d been a brass band to bust out some music, then, it would 'a' been just the perfectest thing I ever see, and Tom Sawyer he said the same."
