Mark Baker explains in fine, but easy to understand,
detail, a whole range of skill and equipment that was
required of a Kentucky long hunter. In this fantastic
five volume DVD series, Baker shows you not only how to
do something but how to do it correct to the time period.
Not only does he show you what to wear, but how and why
they wore it. Each volume is two hours long and the
lessons contained within are invaluable to anyone
interested in living history or reenactment.
Volume 1: Clothing and accoutrements; making oil cloth, center
seam moccasins, putting together your attire. Mark
demonstrates how to dye cloth with walnut hulls, make
tallow and create an authentic look. Flint knapping
demonstration with William White; shooting a rifle, a
fowler and a pistol, plus more. Two hours long.
