This old style survival book of trapping and snaring lore, contains one of the greatest descriptive and applicable primitive and modern ways of acquiring game for food and sustenance. The book that was originally published in 1907 has been digitalized painstakingly, not a cheap scan like some offer that is blurry and hard to read.

This is a classic collection from Harding who was one of the first national advocates of scientific wildlife management, conservation and good sportsmanship in the 1900`s. This early work is a fascinating look at a vanished era and skills we can still use today The Prepper Archaeology project is a joint venture between Ron Foster and Cheryl Chamlies to establish a collection of historic preparedness research and information books under the banner of Elemental Publishing. We search the antique book stores and the archives for old tomes of forgotten knowledge contained in out of print or forgotten books and make arrangements to republish them as a resurrection into good quality modern books. Meticulous care and detail in reproduction is undertaken to preserve and honor the author?s original works and preserve the old time secrets and methods used by great pioneers and woodsmen. The republishing process utilizes good quality low acid cr me colored paper and modernized high gloss book covers for durability. The books included in the collection are hand selected by experts in their field for the Prepper community?s enjoyment, so that this historical lore will not be lost and may be reused again to face the disasters of an uneasy world once more. This book that we have undertaken to represent was originally published in 1907. It contains methods of trapping and snaring that may be illegal in your state. Please you caution and common sense if you wish to try any of the historic methods contained here in. The book is for informational and research uses only. Arthur Robert Harding (July 1871? 1930), better known as A.R. Harding, was an American outdoorsman and founder of Hunter-Trader-Trapper and Fur-Fish-Game Magazine, and publisher, editor and author of many popular outdoor how-to books of the early 1900s. Harding began hunting and trapping at the age of nine. At age 14, he was buying pelts from boys in his neighborhood, and reselling them at a profit. Making his rounds on horseback, he carried most of the pelts in a sack, but tied the fox skins to the saddle to show that his business was doing well. By the age of 20, Harding was employed by L. Frank & Sons, Ohio's Reliable Fur and Hide Dealers, of Zanesville, Ohio, as a fur buyer.. Price: $11.48
