About this product
- DescriptionBobbie Kalman's acclaimed Historic Communities Series provides a close-up view of how people lived more than two hundred years ago. Colorful photos, many taken by Bobbie Kalman herself at restored historic villages across the country, help support the fascinating information. Children will have fun learning about:
-- early homes and the settler community
-- what people wore and the crafts they made
-- how settlers made their living
-- how they spent their leisure time
-- the values, customs, and traditions of the early settlers
Early pioneers would travel from far and wide to visit the gristmill for the essential service of having their grain ground. Communities often developed in areas where gristmills had been built. In The Gristmill young readers will find out how the miller produced flour, the staple of life, as well as learn the answers to these questions:
-- How does wheat become bread?
-- Where was the gristmill located and why was it so crucial?
-- What jobs did the miller do?
-- What was the source of power that turned the grinding stones?
