Overview

If you're struggling in the modern world, or you just want to increase your repertoire of timeworn life skills, what better place to look for inspiration than the past? It's easy to believe that we have all the answers, but there's a whole heap of stuff we have forgotten that folks from days gone by actually knew how to do.

You'll be captivated by the ancient tips, careworn advice, and bygone suggestions inside this book. Step-by-step instructions introduce you to 101 of the most important things we don't know how to do anymore.

In no time you'll be able to fight with a rapier and dagger, thatch a roof, plow a field, wear a Roman toga, lay siege to a castle, pluck a chicken, hurl a battleaxe, make fire without matches, embalm a body, and use heaps of other know-how from the days of yore.

Never again will you be daunted by a hula hoop, a cow that needs milking, or a challenge to pistols at dawn. And you won't believe how you ever managed without knowing how to make a pair of shoes, keep your horse well groomed, live off the land, and pan for gold.

So what are you waiting for? There's no time like the present for traveling back to the past.
