Seems these pages would be annoying to navigate and read on a Kindle. Also, the obvious irony of downloading a Kindle version of this book lol.
Does the book include nunchuck skills, bow hunting skills, and computer hacking skills?
I have two copies of the back to basics book. This one and one from who knows how long ago. 10+ years old probably more. Anyway awesome book and I love the white bread recipe in it. Super simple and great tasting.

My parents had this book when I was growing up. As kids we spent hours and hours reading and rereading in. It's an awesome book to have on your shelf as a reference book.

Wait—it says "skills employed by our forefathers"…what could there possibly be to update??? Is there late breaking research into skills our forefathers used?🤔🤷
