DNF only because I'm not interested in all the text. It's a totally worthy book if you're interested in the history & culture of everyday people. I grabbed it from the library for the chapter on 'preserving and cooking food' as I'm always looking for basic wholesome ways to cook traditional cheap foods. I did get a 'recipe' (more like a preparation strategy, so simple) for baked chicken I might try, and a recipie for squash casserole I'm really looking forward to.
A Great Series on how on people use to do thing when they were mostly self sufficient, and not store dependent different volumes cover everything from snake handling. to log cabin building to planting by the seasons, a must for DIY'ers and survivalists. Check out for individual contents.

Recommends it for: diy people, those interested in sustainable living, Appalachian culture
Of the series, this is one that is rather valuable in terms of usable knowledge. Occasionally, these books ramble about nothing in particular, but after reading #11, I can bake scratch biscuits, syrup bread, make applesauce and plant a garden at the right time of year.

That's pretty good, I think.

This is a rehash of information presented in the previous volumes. An oral history of early 1900s Appilachia in northern Georgia. Covers farming, cooking, and plants among other topics.
