Outdoors Free Kindle Books 8-5-13

PLEASE. Do everyone a favor and write an Amazon review if you end up reading a book (or trying to and giving up in disgust). It does not have to be much. Just tell what you think of the book. By the way, many times I have found the 1 and 2 star reviews on self published works to be far more revealing about the book than the more stellar reviews. Reviewers need gratification too, so if a review is helpful to you, please click on the voting button to indicate it was helpful.

Most times these books are only free for a day or two, so you have to grab them while you can. Worry about whether you really want to read it later if it seems interesting. And be careful, they can change from free to not free at any time. I have also decided to list books for no more than 3 days in a row to avoid cluttering up the posts, unless there is some reason I think the book deserves extra attention.

From the top 100 free list

Free From Stackpole.
Stackpole seems to put a book or two up for free periodically.  I have read several of their free books. Some interesting stuff. Most of what I have seen is WWII German military history, with varying quality of translation, some other military history from lesser known units, along with some fishing books.

After hiking the AT from Maine to Georgia, Lucy and Susan Letcher decided that the best way to get home would be to turn around and hike it again. So they did--barefoot, of course--but this time, they encountered hardships and joys the didn't expect at all.

The Roy E. Dunlap classic book on making and repairing guns is reprinted here as part of Stackpole s Classic Gun Books series. Dunlap shows the skilled gunsmith how to produce professional-quality work in every phase of gunwork; included are instructions on working with metals, chamber and barrel work, and designing and crafting gunstocks. Detailed instructions are illustrated with diagrams, drawings, and photographs of a variety of firearms.
