I read a lot and post my reviews
New England Year: A Journal of Vermont Farm Life - Muriel Follett, Herbert Waters

New England year: a journal of Vermont farm life by Follett, Muriel; Waters, Herbert
A journal of day to day happenings, events, school, county fair and different foods and how they are harvested/canned during the year.
Words make you feel as if you are there, in the 1800's.  Enjoyed hearing of the winter crafts and how the community pulls together when one is injured or needs help.
Have seen icecutting done and really appreciate all the hard work it takes. Maple syrup runs best with wind from the west. Such knowledge from this time that could be used today.
Certain trees for sleigh runners.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).
