 1.  Practicing Primitive: A Handbook of Aboriginal Skills

Watts, Steven M, and Campbell, Paul Gibbs Smith Publishers 2005 9.78E+12 Trade paperback


Practicing Primitive: A Handbook of Aboriginal Skills is a collection of information and images put together over a twenty-year period in a search for hands-on communication with our shared Stone Age past. The story of the Stone Age is our story, and primitive technology is a way for anyone who wants to understand that shared history. Watts makes the case that the learning and practice of aboriginal skills helps us connect with our remote past, encourages us to participate in the shared inheritance of primitive ('first') skills.
