About the Author
Robynne Elizabeth Miller is author of "From the Mouth of Ma: A Search for Caroline Quiner Ingalls," and is wife to an amazing Brit, mother to a glorious brood of adopted and biological kids, and makes her home in the snowy woods of Northern California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains. Besides her family, faith, history, music and cooking, writing has emerged as one of her greatest passions. When not glued to a keyboard, feverishly working on her latest project or caring for her energetic family, she can be found blogging at mylittleprairiehome.com and thepracticalpioneer.com.

What is so neat about this book is that each section explores the different types of drinks in each category, explains how they were made, and even offers recipes. You could easily use this book for a home schooling lesson or just for an experiment of what it was like to make things the way the pioneers did.
From buttermilk to eggnog to mulled cider and more, you'll enjoy learning more about the liquids consumed back then and how resourceful pioneers were considering the limited availability of ingredients.
These recipes are historically accurate and have been converted to modern measurements accurately.
