This book is a real treasure chest of rapidly disappearing folk knowledge and skills. It captures a nostalgic segment of the cultural heritage of the U.S. and our pioneering ancestors. Where else would one go for information on how to make a garlic-mustard poultice, rock candy, or learn to play jacks, let alone make your own furniture polish?
Even if you are not searching for Grandmother's recipe for peppermint soap, this book is delightful to read. It's charming, funny, quaint, and totally engaging. The book construction is reminiscent of early bookbinding techniques, with an easy-to-read layout and wonderful illustrations.
This book would make a perfect gift for daughters and grand-daughters, siblings, friends who like handcrafts, and friends who are seeking the simpler life of earlier times.
You know you've always wanted a rag rug, but couldn't quite figure out the logistics. Candle making, check. Spin yarn! Now you can give it a whirl too!
Best part, it's separated into Kitchen, Bathroom, Bathroom, Bedroom, Parlor, and Barn and Beyond sections. Added bonus...Prairie Lingo, so you can feel all big bugs with your mad skills.
You'll be like Laura Prairie Girl...but with indoor plumbing.
