This reprint of an actual early-nineteenth-century diary provides today's readers with a delightful rarity. Eric Sloane has taken a fifteen-year-old farm boy's brief, concise notebook and expanded the daily entries with explanatory narrative and his own remarkable drawings. As a result, he has preserved the simplicity and charm of a bygone era. A fascinating guide to past life and customs in rural New England, the book includes verbal and graphic sketches detailing the construction of an entire backwoods farm.
Unabridged republication of the work originally published by Wilfred Funk, Inc., New York, 1962.
