From the Back Cover:
In colonial times there were no factories. If some needed a barrel or a chair, that object had to be made by hand. Crafts people made furniture, utensils for the home, and tools for farmers. Each of these essential artisans was skilled in one particular craft. The wheelwright, for example, made wheels.
Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:
Taken from Chapter 13: The Wigmaker Wigs were worn by those who could afford their expensive prices. Wealthy children as young as seven years old were fitted for wigs. In the early day of the colonies, large wigs were considered fashionable. The most expensive wigs were made from human hair. It was not uncommon for people to have their hair cut off to be woven into wigs. Cheaper wigs were made from horsehair or silk. To keep them clean and neat, wigs needed to be powered with fine sand or flour dust and then shaken and combed. The powder absorbed the oils that built up from the person's own hair underneath. People did not wash their hair very often in those days!
