This is an older book predating the advent of the rocket stove, but it remains to best overall book on burning wood that I am aware of. Everything from reviewing dozens of standard model types, how to's for DIY construction on all budgets, how to start fires, how fuel and oxygen interact to make fire, how draw and draft work, wood types, how to cook with fire. It all here - easily written and very readable to the common man with plenty of black and white photos and diagrams.

Would highly recommend to those interested in the subject.

These are links to Ole Wik books on wood stoves, I'm not sure if it's the same book you mention

Older book? I remember picking it up when it first came out. A lot of good info in it.

Cool Bill! Yup from the little click through I just did (one or two pages) it looks like the same book. Mine is the (c) 1977 from Alaska Northwest Publishing Company. Originally published in 1939
 
If you're gonna buy things, buy this thing and I get a fat kickback:
