Primitive Skills - MAPS
Years ago when The Clan of the Cave Bear books came out I read them with great interest, with all the mention of the herbs used and the developments of the peoples.
For years I remember The Rosemary House sold (and I own) the complete set of The Foxfire Book series. The Foxfire books cover everything from faith healing to fire starting to log cabin building to moon shining. Fast forward . . .two and a half decades . . . . . . Over Memorial day weekend this year, our dear friends invited us on a weekend adventure to the Mid-Atlantic Primitive Skills Gathering were we learned pottery, beer brewing, cordage making, bark basketry, finger weaving, atlatl making and much more. Activities of interest for everyone in our "clan".
