“While the writer cannot give each of his readers a taste of this coveted bear meat in material form, or a whiff of the beaver medicine, direct from the wooden flask made by the late Bow-arrow’s own hands, still the author hopes that the magical qualities of this great medicine will enter into and form a part of the subject matter of this book, and through that medium inoculate the souls and bodies of his readers, purify them and rejuvenate them with a love of the World AS God Made It.” – Dan Beard

I was reading Coalcracker Bushcrafts Journal page and came across an article called Three Classic Bushcraft skills books you should read. I had read Nessmuk and Horace Kephart but had never heard of Daniel Beard.
