Winner of the British Book Industry Awards Non-fiction Book of the Year 2016 Whether you're a seasoned woodcutter, or your passion is yet to be kindled, Norwegian Wood is the perfect fireside read, and an ideal gift. Chopping and stacking wood is a pastime where the world makes sense once more. Because our relationship to fire is so ancient, so universal, it seems that in learning about wood, you can also learn about life. Who better to impart this wisdom than an expert from Scandinavia, where the extreme climate has obliged generations to hone and share their skills with tools, wood and heat production. Lars Mytting has distilled the wisdom of enthusiasts, from experienced lifelong growers, stackers and burners to researchers and professionals of combustion and tree culture. Part guide to the best practice in every aspect of working with this renewable energy source, part meditation on the human instinct for survival, this definitive handbook on the art of chopping, stacking and drying wood in the Scandinavian way has resonated across the world, with more than half a million copies sold. Norwegian Wood and The Norwegian Wood Activity Book make the ultimate companion set.
