Lost Wisdom: A Celebration of Traditional Knowledge from Foraging and Festivals to Seafaring and Smoke Signals

by Una McGovern Author

An old timey compendium of lore and how-tos, packed with instructions, anecdotes, and historical pieces showing how and why our forebears got through life without modern technology. Finding water, semaphore signals, sobering up, repairing clothes, navigating by nature, curing warts, forecasting the weather, using an abacus, tea-making, herbal first aid, tree and plant identification and many, many, many more skills have their moment to shine in these pages. Some you'll want to try out, others you'll just be entertained by.
