The book opens with a broad overview of the 18th century environment in which the longhunters lived, and then moves on to the clothing, weapons, and equipment that they relied on during their sojourns through the trackless forests of the 18th century. Joseph's use of either primary or well-researched secondary sources provides a firm foundation for his work. His personal experience recreating the life of a mid-1700's woodsman is evident throughout the book and adds much to its character for those who read between the lines. — Mike Alton
