Detailed Description

A Reverence for Wood by Eric Sloane

Refreshingly written and delightfully illustrated book underscores the important role wood has played in the development of American life and culture. Covering such topics as the aesthetics of wood, wooden implements, and carpentry, the text also remarks expansively on the resourcefulness of early Americans in their use of this valuable commodity - from fashioning cradles, barns, and coffins to making furniture, tools and medicine, Entertaining, factual, and historically accurate, this volume will be a great book for woodworkers and lovers of Americana.

Eric Sloane (1905-1985) was an American painter who had a keen interest in early American life in the Colonial era. He wrote many books on the subject, each with detailed illustrations and hand lettering, accompanied by his wit and folksy observations. Other Eric Sloane titles available at Highland Woodworking are A Museum Of Early American Tools (202695) and The Tools That Built America (205628).
