i'm so happy i got this book and its companion volume--it makes my heart happy. there's a part of me that really is confirmed luddite, and this not only reinforces the proper place of that in my life, it offers wonderful suggestions for feeding that part of me. great addition to the "library".

Good info

Another good how-to and how-was book on a number of surprisingly topical and useful skills. What if the country did go over a fiscal cliff? Come to think of it, how did our ancestors manage without the Internet, or smart phones, or cookbooks, or corporate food? Quite well, apparently--we're here. Try something from this book every month and regain a kind of freedom you didn't realize you'd lost.

Pleasantly surprised. The preview doesn't give the full scope of ideas you find in this book but it has given me ideas I wouldn't have tried on my own. It's not a guide for domesticity but does exactly as the title implies- revives lost arts of the home.

this is a lovely book with great anecdotal information and lovely instructions for all manner of domestic art. I am a great fan both his books. He is also a wonderful lecturer. He has a set of lectures on the history of cuisine that the teaching company has produced. take the time to look this up, you'll love it!

I wanted a book to serve as guidance for my life now, but it reads more like a mildly entertaining history book on the way things used to be done.

I Love these types of books.They bring back the old times.The unheard of everyday type recipes are the ones I love the most
Though a bit eclectic (both good and bad) -- it covers brick ovens to pickling, but not thoroughly, just an interesting taste and boldness-encourager to try these things yourself. If a way to gauge a book is to look up something you know and see how well they cover that, then this book fails a bit. The design for the brick oven, though a fascinating twist on creating your own bricks . . . doesn't cover logical design (chimney is wrong) nor how to seal the u-made bricks.
But, we need more information like this (though perhaps better tested, researched) --- entertaining, useful, inspirational.
Got it from the library, and put it on my wishlist.
