The Lost Arts of Hearth and Home: The Happy Luddite's Guide to Domestic Self-Sufficiency
The Lost Arts of Hearth and Homeis not about extreme, off-the-grid living. It's for city and suburban dwellers with day jobs- people who love to cook, love fresh, natural ingredients, and love old techniques for preservation; people who like doing things themselves with a needle and thread, garden hoe, or manual saw.
Intended for industrious cooks and crafters who aren't afraid to roll up their sleeves, The Lost Arts of Hearth and Homewill teach you the history and how-to on projects for every facet of your home, all without the electric toys that take away from the experience of making things by hand.
