Het Prentenboek is an extensive reference for adults on the footprints of mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles and invertebrates found in northwest Europe. In the 452-page book, the prints of more than 100 species are treated with more than 700 photographs and over 350 drawings. Het Prentenboek was created by René Nauta and Aaldrik Pot. They have been working on it for more than three years, but actually it has more than forty years of experience in the search for prints and traces.

Indian Fishing

Of the many resources available to the First Nations of the Northwest Coast, the most vital was fish. The people devised ingenious ways of catching the different species of fish, creating a technology vastly different from that of today's industrial world. With attention to clarity and detail, Hilary Stewart illustates their hooks, lines, sinkers, lures, floats, clubs, spears, harpoons, nets, traps, rakes, and gaffs, showing how these were made and used-in over 450 drawings and 75 photographs. She has gathered material from major museums and from the old people in coastal villages and fish camps. One section demonstrates how the catch was butchered, cooked, rendered, and preserved. The spiritual aspects of fishing are described as well--prayers and ceremonies in gratitude and honour to the fish, customs and taboos indicating the people's respect for this life-giving resource. The fish designs on household and ceremonial objects are depicted--images that tell of fishing's importance to the whole culture.

Books, I love them! They can give so much depth to the skills you're trying to master. During or after each lesson or training at Living by Nature or Siegurd.nl, for example, I ask the instructor to be able to recommend books to me. Especially those who deal with the subject on which is taught. For me, books are never a substitute for a good lesson or the experimental learning [...]
