From Our Editors

To townsfolk, the general store was a place to buy all the necessities of life. From spices to fabrics to nifty gadgets, all of it was available at the store, the centre of community life. Part of the entertaining Historic Communities series by Bobbi Kalman, this volume features almost four dozen full-colour photographs of models in period dress busy in a restored historic village. Aimed at children aged six to 14, it also includes a vivid account of what life was like at the centre of the community.

Appropriate for ages: 6 - 14
