Synopsis: Author Eric Sloane applies his reverent touch to yet another fascinating aspect of early American life as he considers the seasons of the year. From kites and marbles, "sugaring time," and strawberry picking in the spring, to the weeding season, fall harvests, and cider-making, this charming book takes readers through a full year's activities, with Sloane's drawings of cider mills and presses, sleds, pumps. and wells; stump-pulling equipment, axes, plows, and other elements of America's rural heritage. A section of old recipes and household hints adds additional color and practical value to this delightful book.
