The Norwegian Wood also provides enough talking points to help explain why man is so passionate about open fires.
The Norwegian Wood offers an opportunity to look into one of the aspects of the exotic culture of Scandinavia. It weaves anecdotes with interesting facts to make each read fascinating. This also helps keep the reader interested in the topic. There is inspired prose, too. Such elements give the Norwegian Wood a more universal appeal.

The Norwegian Wood: Chopping, Stacking, and Drying Wood the Scandinavian Way is more than a how-to book. It offers a rare glimpse of the Stone Age wood fire practices of the fabled land near the Arctic Circle.
