A comprehensive lesbian craft manual that serves as a continuation of the duo's Rangers program, an on-going performance work which questions both "the use of the natural world as a model for heterosexuality and culturally held biases about recreation." A practical field guide that mimics traditional boy scout manuals of the 1950's, this title describes Flora, Fauna, and Lesbian Survival Skills in intimate detail, all richly illustrated by Daniel Barrow.
"Discover how to start a fire and keep it going, what and whom to eat, and the secrets of lesbian psychology."
