Having just read all the Laura & Mary (Little House) books to my daughter, I can tell you that Pa can build ANYTHING with an axe. Pa uses the axe for felling sometimes, but also as a chisel, plane, spokeshave, you name it. He probably ties it to some string for a level and uses it to light fires with a bit of flint. I think the only other tools he has are a shovel and a gun.

Based on this, my advice is to get a good axe and leave everything else at home.
