Dave Canterbury Fire by Flintlock & James Babb The Devil’s Backbone Novel

Dave Canterbury from Discovery Channel’s first two seasons of Dual Survival has agreed to let me post some of his videos to help my readers picture how hunters and trappers lived in the 1800’s and before.

My upcoming novel, The Devil’s Backbone, is set in the 1800’s.

In this video Dave explains how important flint and the flintlock rifle was to our ancestors. He also shows how they used the flintlock to start fires.

In my novel, fourteen year old Brody has an accident with on old flintlock because of its sparks.

Here you will find Dave’s Pathfinder Store with lots of great information and cool survival products for sale.

Thanks Dave
