American Axe: The Tool That Shaped a Continent

(Inbunden)
Beskrivning:

Woodsman and forester Brett McLeod pays tribute to the axe with stunning photography and illuminating text that traces this historic hand tool's evolution in form and function through North American culture and history. From bronze axes of the Viking conquests to the American homesteader's felling axe, this is a tool that has shaped human history like few others. American Axe pays tribute to this iconic instrument of settlement and industry, with rich history, stunning photography, and profiles of the most collectible vintage axes such as The Woodslasher, Keen Cutter, and True Temper Perfect. Combining his experiences as a forester, axe collector, and former competitive lumberjack, author Brett McLeod conveys the allure of this deceptively simple woodcutting implement and celebrates the resurging interest in its story and use. AUTHOR: Brett McLeod is the author of American Axe and The Woodland Homestead and an avid axe collector and restorer. Before becoming a forestry professor and coach of the woodsmen's team at Paul Smith's College in the Adirondack Park, he was a professional competitive lumberjack in the Stihl Ironjack Series and competed in the Stihl Timbersports Collegiate Series. He lives in Northern New York with his wife and his collection of 200 vintage axes.
