I recently finished reading Traces of the Past by David Weitzman. If you have been following my blog, you saw that I have posted reviews about the chapters of this book over the past few months.
This book is a tremendous resource; a collection of tips and tricks for identifying hardware in the wilderness. It covers railroad markers, bridges, blast furnaces and oil derricks in great detail.
I also appreciated the last chapter, which discussed taking children into the outdoors to draw pictures of bridges. This lets their natural curiosity drive questions about differences in bridges and how bridges are made.
Thank you for reading my very brief book review.
