The guide begins with a historical perspective to put the craft projects into a human context. Information is divided into the basic areas of concern facing a person heading into Missouri and the western frontiers prior to 1820. Those basic areas-food, clothing, shelter and comfort are also applicable today. Within each of these general headings is a discussion of methods and materials used during the time period just specified. Following the general discussion, techniques (some modified to modern circumstances) are presented along with specific activities and projects using those techniques. Projects, with instructions and diagrams, include: Bow and Drill Fire Starter, Indian Tanning, Soft Sole Plains Moccasins, Buckskin Shirt, Leggings, Plains Indian Dress, Drop-Sleeve Shirt, Beadwork, Natural Dyes, Hunting Bag, Knife Sheath & Brass Candle Lantern.
