Shelters, Shacks and Shanties


Shelters, Shacks and Shanties


Free Shipping on retail sales within the USA.

Daniel C. Beard, one of the founders of the Boy Scouts of America, wrote and illustrated numerous books on the outdoors, including The American Boy's Handy Book, a classic best-seller with over 300,000 copies in print.

Shelters, Shacks, and Shanties was written and illustrated by Beard in 1914. It has 338 pen and ink drawings, along with instructions for a wide range of shelters, from the simplest and most basic — structures built with nothing but a hatchet — to gradually more elaborate constructions using an axe. It’s addressed to “boys of all ages” and is of special interest to homesteaders or anyone else thinking about putting a simple roof overhead.
