Stick Making, A Complete Course by Andrew Jones and Clive George is a wonderful and tremendously useful book. I liked my first copy so much that I bought a second copy and sent it to a friend who makes sticks. The book covers finding, cutting and seasoning wood to make sticks: removing bark, straightening sticks and the importance and usefulness of burls {burrs}, branching roots, and nicely textured bark. It is true that some of the species recommended may not be at hand where you live, but suitable species with similar characteristics can usually be found.

There is plenty of information, pictures and illustrations in this book to get you going in the hobby. It is presented in an engaging manner. The authors's knowledge of the topic is obvious. If you have any interest in traditional walking sticks, then this small book is worth having. Caveat: I have not completed a stick based on this book, but I have started several. Harvesting and curing can take over a year, and that's where I am at.

I made a stick from native hawthorn BEFORE I got this book. Took that stick on a 60 mile pack trip this summer. The thought was that if I didn't take to it, I could just chuck it, being biodegradable and all. Just the opposite happened. That experience made me a believer in hiking with a stick. I realize most hikers now use "trekking poles," and that's fine. But for all their utility, trekking poles have the no personality; it's hard to get attached to a trekking pole.
The process of making them is fun and relaxing, and using something you made is very satisfying. This book is a fine introduction to stickmaking in the Welsh tradition. But of course an object as simple as a walking stick could be made many ways, or even not made at all, so is this book strictly necessary? Only if you are interested in the way it is done in the UK. But just so you know, Mr. George and Mr. Jones know a lot about making walking sticks.

It was okay. I have some questions that I couldn't find answers to in the book. Guess I'll just muddle through.
