The Wood Fire Handbook covers everything you need to know about creating the perfect wood fire, indoors and out, including: the best woods to burn, how to split logs, how to store and season firewood, creating the perfect woodstore, how to lay and tend a fire, choosing wood for scent, cooking on an open fire, and campfires. Illustrated with a mix of line drawings and evocative photographs, this is fundamentally a practical handbook, but with plenty of gift appeal.
