Backwoods Wisdom

My own modest attempt at rekindling some of the forgotten spirit, wisdom, ingenuity, determination, and downright "grit" of our ancestors, both domestic and abroad, and celebrating those who strive to keep alive the traditions of our forefathers. Most images I post are not mine and I try to cite sources as accurately as possible. Also check out my other blog: ultimate-world-war-ii.tumblr.com
