Sloane, Eric

Diary of an Early American Boy 1805

For his 15th birthday in 1805, Noah Blake received a little leather-bound diary. Eric Sloane has taken his diary entries and expounded upon them, fleshing out the details, and adding 72 drawings, some fold-out, to bring the reader into Noah's world. This unique book describes activities such as making nails, building a bridge, splitting shingles, spring plowing, maple sugaring, and building a backwoods farm.
