Format: Paperback
The Village: Life in Colonial Times, was not an appropriate title for this book in my opinion. It was supposed to be about life in the times, which is many aspects of their lifestyles back then, according to the title. When I read it, I found that it was only about all the different jobs of the colonial era, which was very disappointing. I did not like it because of this - I had thought it was going to be about the clothing they wore, and different shops, and their religion, etc. But, as I said, it was only about the jobs. Also, there were no pretty colorful pictures to go along with the text, only black and white, un- detailed sketches. So, if you are looking for a book about the jobs in colonial times, this is great for you, but if you want a book about all different parts of life in the colonial times, I would recommend finding something else.

What was a gristmill and how did it operate? What was a housewright, and what did he use "trunnels" for? This is a fascinating glimpse into the life of a colonial village in the year 1730. By showing people's various occupations, author James Knight offers readers a unique window into American history. Highly recommended.
