Share & discuss books on Bushcraft, other related topics

  • February 27, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

It's halfway through winter and there is still time to settle in with a good book if you don't want to be outside. Or several good books if you are so inclined. Semi-hibernation can be about preparing for the active life to come. 

Come share your bushcraft printed materials in a casual setting.  This is not intended to be a structured book review session. We can sit and visit and look over different books. Tell us why you like a particular book and how it informed your practice of bushcraft.

Any lending of personal materials between members is entirely at the sole risk of the owner. This being a public library, there can be NO selling nor solicitation during the Meetup.

    I enjoyed see everyone and am happy with our turnout. Also, I am happy that we are back ONLINE! Been a long couple of days without a way to get the book list posted for everyone. I will post what we have thus far here, but will post another one in the files section for easier access later on. Thanks again for making the most current meetup a success and also a special thanks to Meg for getting it set up!
