The wood fire handbook
A practical guide to all things wood fire, both indoors and out.
Whether you have an open fireplace, a wood-burner or simply love a bonfire, this book has something for you. From knowing the difference between species of wood, how they burn differently, their smells and smokes to how to prepare it through chopping and splitting. From how to store it and build a practical and beautiful wood pile, it goes on to inform about building fires for different situations and even how to cook on an open fire.
Vincent Thurkettle is a woodsman. After spending his childhood roaming the Somerset countryside, he left school at 16 to work on the Huntley Estate in Gloucestershire. He subsequently trained as a Chartered Forester, and worked for the Forestry Commission, retiring in 2005.
