Pioneer Arts and CraftsBook - 1968
The author "describes all aspects of domestic manufactures and processes of pioneer days; he traces the development of wood-working in furniture and buldings, and the tanning, spinning, and weaving industries. He describes many farming activities which have long since disappeared such as soap-making and lime-burning. There are several chapters on cooking, including some recipes for the preparation of medicinal remedies."--back cover.
