    Colonial Women Walker, Niki
    $8.95

     European colonists came to North America in the early 1600s. Most colonists came from towns and cities in Europe, so they were not prepared for the harsh wilderness. Most colonists believed that men were stronger and smarter than women. They had definite ideas about the roles, jobs, and behaviors that were suitable for women. The biggest events in most women's lives were marriage and childbirth. Their traditional jobs were preparing food, cleaning, caring for children and treating illnesses. This booklet for young readers depicts Colonial women in all their roles.

    Early American Wrought Iron is a celebration of the village blacksmith revealing the master craftsman in all his glory, his technical skills, and artistry, and illuminating his crucial role in the development of American culture. It is a giant essential resource for both blacksmiths and architects. Sonn, an excellent draftsman and commercial artist, dismayed that so many pieces of early American wrought iron were discarded, began to compile a collection of his own detailed drawings of early American wrought iron. His search through museums, antique shops, private houses, and collections uncovered many fine examples of ironwork.They are illustrated here in 640 plates containing over 3,000 drawings. Sonn spent eight and one half years traveling along the East coast sketching and doing research for this classic work.
