Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bobbie Kalman's acclaimed Historic Communities Series provides a close-up view of how people lived more than two hundred years ago. Colorful photos, many taken by Bobbie Kalman herself at restored historic villages across the country, help support the fascinating information. Children will have fun learning about: <BR>-- early homes and the settler community<BR>-- what people wore and the crafts they made<BR>-- how settlers made their living<BR>-- how they spent their leisure time<BR>-- the values, customs, and traditions of the early settlers<P>While many settler sayings have not survived, there are many which we still use today which trace their origins back to a trade such as blacksmithing — "strike while the iron is hot, " or from the fashion of the time, such as "pulling the wool over someone's eyes, " referring to their woolen wigs. In Settler Sayings, young readers will learn how common sayings find their roots in day-to-day lives: <BR>-- in the mill<BR>-- at the inn<BR>-- in the kitchen<BR>-- on the farm<BR>-- in battle<BR>-- in the artisan's workroom
