Combining old-fashioned common sense and modern-day ingenuity, Pearls of Country Wisdom offers hundreds of ways for anyone to enjoy a simpler, more natural lifestyle. In 1995 Deborah Tukua and her family left their suburban home in Jacksonville, Florida, for life on a farm in rural Tennessee. When they arrived, Tukua turned to her neighbors in nearby towns for any pearls of country wisdom they might be willing to share. Instantly, good advice gushed forth from every imaginable source, including farmers, midwives, herbalists, shopkeepers, and more.This unique and indispensable book represents the distillation of a community's tried-and-true techniques for everything from caring for linen to keeping harmful bugs out of the garden. Here are tips for every corner of the home from bath to toolshed, kitchen to barn. (5 3/4 X 8 1/2, 372 pages, b&w photos)
