I came across Eric Sloane's books when I was a teenage wanna-be author researching a book set in early America. Well, reading through Sloane's books I enjoyed the research so much I never actually got around to writing the story. His books are wonderful descriptions of everyday life in this young country, and his penciled illustrations are absolutely wonderful and informative. I collect all his books now, and pick them up when I find them.

Loved the sketches of tools and their applications. I also liked the monthly format which showd that the past could be applied today. Easy to read

Really loved reading this book. Wish we could learn this stuff again at least people would be self relient if they learned this early stuff.
