Handbooks is a free library of digitized and downloadable chapters of historic how-to instructions covering building, farming, gardening, livestock, recipes, medicine, hunting and prospecting from rare and useful pioneer and settler handbooks of the 1800′s.
These books taught colonist families how to successfully clear the land, build a log cabin or farmhouse, grow food, take care of farm animals, cook meals, fight diseases and heal their injuries. They are the original colonial DIY guides.
