Blue Mountain Buckskin
    The Classic Guide to Dry-Scrape
  • Thorough and expert tanning instructions
  • Good garment construction section
  • The best moccasin pattern
  • How-to is a little bit buried in text
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.

You Expect this from Jim!
Reviewed By: Vaughn Terpack from the Western Peidmont of South Carolina     March 4 2000

Jim Riggs is a good man. I've studied tanning with him and I learned quite a bit.

There are many tanning books out there but this was the first and it has quite a bit of history behind it. It isn't an in-depth treatise on the subject, but it is absolutely, unequivocally, perfect in its coverage.

If you are interested in learning the art, you must have this book. If you already know tanning and don't have this book in your library, shame on you.
