American yesterday by Eric Sloane ( Book )

"Eric Sloane has here brought together engrossing facts and anecdotes and, with his observant pen, has illustrated the activities, the customs, the things that were created by the people who made their living in what some of us today are prone to call antique ways. As always in Eric Sloane's books of Americana, the reader, young and old, is delighted and charmed with America yesterday. This book is dedicated to those people who have kept the past alive, sorting out the discarded objects with fond hands, though not knowing exactly why they did so, but having the New England tradition that everything comes in handy some time if one waits long enough. Those with this feeling will welcome the 'voice of ghosts' to be found here. This book captures in its way the living heritage of America as seen in 'the things that were.'
