Shelters, Shacks and Shanties

Shelters, Shacks and Shanties


Check out Shelters, Shacks and Shanties, a Gutenberg free e-book, originally written and illustrated in 1920 by D.C. Beard.

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.
