IN AN AGE when most wonder how they can accomplish anything without the aid of electricity or gasoline, The Scythe Book shows how a traditional hand tool can often outperform "modern" technology.

In this book David Tresemer presents the results of years of research and practical experience so that the reader may also learn to use and enjoy the scythe.
