Publisher Description:
Over half a century ago, John Rowlands set out by canoe into the wilds of Canada to survey land for a timber company. After paddling alone for several days--it was so quiet I could hear the drops from the paddle hitting the water--he came upon the lake of my boyhood dreams. He never left. He named the place Cache Lake because there was stored the best that the north had to offer--timber for a cabin; fish, game, and berries to live on; and the peace and contentment he felt he could not live without.

Cache Lake Country is a vivid and faithful chronicle of life in the great Northern Forest and a storehouse of valuable information on woodcraft and nature. Here is folklore and philosophy, but most of all wisdom about the woods and the inventiveness and self-reliance they demand. The author explains how to make moccasins, barrel stoves, lean-to shelters, outdoor bake ovens, sailing canoes, and hundreds of other ingenious and useful gadgets, all illustrated in the margins with 230 enchanting drawings by Henry B. Kane.
