Publisher's Summary

The "good old days" certainly weren't easy, as this memoir from Walter Needham's grandfather shows. Barrows Mussey's thoughts provide brief and colorful descriptions of carpentry, farming, animal husbandry, and domestic sciences in New England in the 1800s. For those of us who yearn for simpler times, this book reminds us how difficult they were and provides an accurate picture of life a century and more ago.
