The phenomenal Norwegian bestseller - Everything you wanted to know about wood but were afraid to ask "Every man looks at his wood-pile with a kind of affection" Henry David Thoreau 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. And 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. Whether you are a seasoned woodcutter, or your passion is yet to be kindled, Norwegian Wood is the perfect fireside read. As featured on Chris Evans' Breakfast Show on BBC Radio 2 Lars Mytting was born in Favang, Norway in 1968. He is author and journalist. He has written two novels, both met with critical acclaim, and the first was sold to Denmark, Sweden, Germany and Finland. However, it was for Norwegian Wood, a work of non-fiction, that he became a household name.
