A reverence for wood
The special knowledge of which wood is suited to which task, the ready identification of native trees, the reverence for wood, the instinctive knowledge that wood can warm the soul as well as the body -- these virtues of a bygone age are revived in Eric Sloane's remarkable work. Heavily illustrated, with a section on identification of nearly sixty native trees, A REVERENCE FOR WOOD provides an illuminating view of the resource that made possible so much of the early settlement of North America.

Review: A Reverence for WoodUser Review - Goodreads
A really quick, wonderfully illustrated book about how important a role trees have played in the life of man. Focus is particularly on the use of wood/trees by early Americans.

Interesting look, with lots of drawings, of ways to work with wood, using old hand tools.
