Deerskins Into Buckskins
THE MOUNTAIN BUCKSKIN
By- Jim Riggs
This is the guide that taught so many of us the pleasures and pitfalls of braintanning. Jim writes in a way that makes you feel like you're hanging around the fire drinking a beer with him. You do have to follow him on a few tangents to get all the how-to information, but it's expert, and you'll have a good time doing it. Beginners might want to brain their hides more than the one time he recommends.
