I was just wondering what kind of a pioneer would I be...An Annie Oakley, a Miss Kitty or Mrs. Adam Cartwright???

I'm diverse so I'd say Mrs. Adam Cartwright...that likes to fish, hunt, ride and shoot....and would adore Hop Sing to do the cookin'.

I ran away from home when I was 6 to go be a mountain man. Didn’t get any farther than the top of grandpa’s woodshed. Twas ok, though. I still had some things to learn.

They got the whole town out to look for me. I watched it from my perch.

Some not too happy people. I earned my stripes that day....

I love this kind of stuff, I remember being enthralled by my grampa’s copy of the Foxfire Book when I was little. My husband got me a few anthologies of it just after the election, and I should probably add this magazine to beef up the ol’ knowledge base.

......”I remember being enthralled by my grampa’s copy of the Foxfire Book”....Me too. I had the whole series of the Foxfire books years ago and learned so much on how the oldtimers did things with what they could gather from the woods.

I love them but can’t quite decide whether they fill me with inspiration or a sense of overall modern uselessness. LOL

.......”love them but can’t quite decide whether they fill me with inspiration or a sense of overall modern uselessness.”......Ha ! so true...by the way don’t tell anybody else but used copies of the Foxfire books are for sale used on Amazon and for cheap.. The best of the series is book number one and they sell it for about $4.00 + $4.00 shipping. I’ve bought used from them no problems, . ‘Can’t beat that with a stick’

If you’d like to be on or off this Outdoors/Rural/wildlife/hunting/hiking/backpacking/National Parks/animals list please FR mail me. And ping me is you see articles of interest.

One of my favorite magazines, along with Fur-Fish-Game which dates to the turn of the last century. Unfortunately neither have articles on the sites.

I often buy Fur-Fish-Game. Reading it has made me want to try my hand at trapping someday. I have sme conibears but I don’t know enough to start trapping.

In 1998, I got that big book, “Country Living, the Encyclopedia of Country Living” and that’s enough for me. I’m not going to be in the woods and use tools to clear the forest, and catch animals. Young people could do that (but I still wouldn’t if I were young as I’ve never had a large body and lots of strength). I’m a mental working person, so I’ll give directions while the rest follow them - that’s the ticket.
