Time Needed To Master Bushcraft And Primitive Living Skills

It takes a long time to achieve competence approaching mastery with bushcraft and primitive living skills.  There are so many different things to learn, and real learning can’t be rushed.

Consider this:

Tomas Johannson, a director of the Institute for Prehistoric Technology in Sweden, has calculated that would require twelve years of schooling today to learn enough to become a stone-age person.

(From the book Simple Life “Friluftsliv”- People Meet Nature by Roger And Sarah Isberg, p. 183)

I think it’s interesting that the number quoted is 12 years, and our education program through high school is also 12 years.

Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
