About the Book
Eat your way back in time and enter the world of American children as they lived 150 years ago. Sample foods, folklore and games found in the parlours of the wealthy, the boarding houses of the working class, and the cabins on the western frontier. Includes over 60 vintage photos plus historic recipes like cat-head biscuits, sugar plums and hobo mulligan stew. Learn to make snow candles and snow taffy, tell Appalachian ghost stories and play “roley hole” and “jack straws”.

Generally sent the same day payment arrives. Unless you request otherwise, I will wrap the book in plastic wrap to help protect it from the elements, create a custom-made cardboard box to ship it in, and send via Media Mail with Delivery Confirmation tracking. See the shipping page for the cost to send a one-pound Media Mail package. Insurance is an additional cost as described. I am delighted to combine postage and insurance costs if you purchase more than one item. The second item may travel for free or just a few cents more — so it’s worth taking a look at my other items before you complete your order.
