Synopsis: 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:
-- early homes and the settler community
-- what people wore and the crafts they made
-- how settlers made their living
-- how they spent their leisure time
-- the values, customs, and traditions of the early settlers

Ready-made clothing was not always available to the settlers moving westward. Many people dyed, spun, and wove wool and flax to make the cloth from which they sewed their clothes. People worked hard and wore practical clothing. This intriguing book provides young readers with information on:
-- different fashions
-- how clothes were made
-- underwear and footwear
-- hairstyles and hats
-- how to make your own pioneer outfit

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.: Taken from Chapter 10: Sportswear The first bathing suitsIn the 1860s doctors began promoting bathing in lakes and oceans as an aid to good health. The first bathing suits for women were made up of baggy trousers, over which a large, belted cotton shirt was worn. A net or bathing cap kept the hair in place. Men's bathing suits consisted of shorts and a short-sleeved shirt.
