For anyone who finds satisfaction in doing things with their own two hands, How To Do Things delivers advice on accomplishing projects big and small around the house, garden, and farm. Written by gardeners, farmers, and craftsman, with original text and illustrations from the 1919 first edition of How To Do Things, this 100th anniversary volume presents a new generation of readers with expert guidance on every facet of homesteading. With entries on a wide range of subjects, including the art of cheese-making to constructing a handy device for catching runaway pigs, ridding a yard of poison ivy, smoking meat, hosting a potato peeling competition, and so much more, this book is equal parts practical and entertaining. Brimming with wit, wisdom, and nostalgia, How To Do Things is a celebration of self-reliance and a charming invitation to reconnect with life's simple pleasures.
