The Lost Arts of Hearth and Home is not about extreme, off-the-grid living. It's for city and suburban dwellers with day jobs: people who love to cook, love fresh, natural ingredients, and love old techniques for preservation; people who like doing things themselves with a needle and thread, garden hoe, or manual saw.

Ken Albala and Rosanna Nafziger Henderson spread the spirit of antiquated self-sufficiency throughout the household. They offer projects that are decidedly unplugged and a little daring, including: Home building projects like rooftop food dehydrators and wood-burning ovens. Homemaking essentials, from sewing and quilting to rug braiding and soap making. The wonders of grain: making croissants by hand, sprouting grains, and baking bread. Adventures with meat: pickled pig's feet, homemade liverwurst, and celery-cured salami.

Intended for industrious cooks and crafters who aren't afraid to roll up their sleeves, The Lost Arts of Hearth and Home will teach you the history and how-to on projects for every facet of your home, all without the electric toys that take away from the experience of making things by hand.
