I have read all of Mr. Martin's books and I highly recommend them. Trapper's Bible is excellent as well as Into The Primitive, both of which are available here at Amazon.com (a great book store I also recommend!) I also heartily recommend THE SHOT by Dale Martin which details the most talked about long range sniper shot of the Civil War. It is available at AOL Hometown with keyword "sniper". Great work, Dale !
I have read many books on survival and trapping. They all delt a little with the art of trapping to aquire food for survival, but did not give the in depth instruction and details for both large and small game as this book has. I would reccomend this book to any one that is trying to hone-up their survival skills or just wish a low cost alternative to controling pest in their garden.
An excellent source for the complete novice. Martin's work is clear, complete and even humorous. As someone who did not even know the difference between a trap or a snare, I can highly recommend this book as a first step in finding out. The illustrations are flawless. I am someone mildly concerned about the impact of Y2K and this book was a wealth of information on being able to provide meat for yourself in the event of emergencies. Happy reading!
