A Book for Lumbersexuals!

Book cover The Backyard Lumberjack

Stumbled across this book and thought it would be great to hand it out to all the bearded, plaid loving guys out there who need a little help with how to use an axe.  This book goes through the basics: how to identify the best trees for firewood; what gear to get; how to chop down a tree and how to stack your bounty.  You'll also be able to impress your friends with the different types of bonfires you can learn to build.  And finally, there is a chapter devoted to logger games which, if you haven't watched before, are really amazing.
