Here is a smart little booklet that tells you some of the thing you might need to know to live in the mountains and hills of West Virginia. From ramps to garden planting, animals to kitchen know how, this book will help you find your way through mountain living.
If you are wondering about planting parsnips, singing about crawdads, or how to pickle our much beloved ramps, it is here in this useful book.
For those who do not know our state, consider the value of information such as there are 55 pounds of turnip seed in a bushel, and an 8 penny nail is 2 ½ inches long with 101 nails per pound. Or good uses for bacon grease you were going to toss out…
Darn good practical stuff! From kitchen to barn lot, it is found here.
You probably need this book and it might make a fine gift for your cousins, or that nephew that is getting married.
