Part the diary of Noah Blake, who was 15 in 1805, and part a re-creation of the life that a boy in his circumstances would have lived, this book is a loving tribute to a vanished way of life. Profusely illustrated, it will give its readers a sense of participation in the past that is all too rare in conventional histories.

Great book. I'm saving this book for my kids when they get older. I would love to try some of the instructions they have in the book, like homemade ink. It gives a feeling of what it was like in the early 1800s and what people thought back then.
