On Our Shelves Now
What if there were no grocery stores? No electricity? No running water? Our pioneer ancestors never knew these luxuries, and their lives were defined by hard work. But life was also simpler and quieter then, and the pioneers were able to develop their strength and resourcefulness in ways that modern Americans usually cannot. What methods did our ancestors use to survive? In this book you will find plenty of answers: How they made soap, bricks, brooms, and candles. The houses they built. Their home remedies. How they kept pests away. What they used as toothpaste and much more. You may even be inspired to try these recipes and folkways yourself.
