Books from the 1880s

This is an email I received from Pioneer Handbooks with free down loads of two chapters from books from the 1880’s.  I have down loaded them and they are quite interesting.

Hi Howard,  we are of a like mind…

You and your readers can download the recipe chapter for free at the link I gave you below – using the voucher code FREEDOM during the checkout process.  http://www.pioneerhandbooks.com/cooking/10-iowa-settlers-manual-1881-recipes.html

Another chapter is also available for free (http://www.pioneerhandbooks.com/making/28-1896-home-mechanic-making.html) and covers a wide range of things that the settlers and pioneers could make for themselves.

I have a few more chapters on cooking that I’m preparing for the website right now.  I’ll give you a heads up when they are ready.

If you are interested in any other areas such as farming or cleaning let me know as I have good how-to’s on those too.

Best regards,

Craig  –  Pioneer Handbooks
