Beautiful copy of first edition. A great read! Author discovered a diary from 1805 from which he recreated this authentic portrayal. Excellent portait of life on an American farm in the early 19th century with hundreds of instructive illustrations of tools, building materials, in the style of how things work. Depicts a time when you related totally to your environment, for the simple reason that you either build it, harvest it or barter for it!
