This hefty Foxfire volume provides in-depth narratives about life in 20th century New England, as well as detailed instructions on how to
fashion historic products and articles of daily use. Teams of Maine students spent countless quality hours interviewing (then transcribing) senior citizens--recognizing them as a living trust who have preserved traditional Yankee activities and values. Accompanio by student photographs plus excellent sketches and diagrams, these pages recapture dying arts and cherished traditions, faithfully chronicling a vanishing past for future generations to understand and appreciate.

Divided into two parts: the Sea, and The Land, this thick book covers a wide range of New England skills and activities. Now, most readers might not care to tackle it cover to cover, preferring instead to choose articles of special interest. Some topics include: Rum running, lobstering (shrimping, trawling, dragging) and fishing,; sea moss pudding, life in lighthouses, stone walls, barn construction, snowshoes, flintlock rifles, maple syruping, bee hive triangulation--it''s ALL IN THERE! There are sure to be several articles of interest to every reader. A wonderful resource book, which preserves treasured traditions, for all personal librairies.
