Book Description and Condition

Book description and condition

Stephen Blake demonstrates four ways of making fire, rubbing two sticks together using the hand drill, bow drill, fire saw and fire plough methods. He discusses fire making amongst indigenous people of the world, from ancient times and in particular amongst

Australia's Aborigines. Making fire is a basic survival skill, a way of attracting attention if one is lost alone in remote bushland. Shown here without using modern tools, it is possible to use crude pieces of rock to fashion fire sticks and from these to make fire. 240 x 170mm., pp. 102, colour plates throughout, references, acknowledgements, photo credits. Trade paperback, pictorial card covers. FINE
