Written in clear detail and extensively illustrated, The Kaufmann Mercantile Guide teaches us what we ought to know how to do, as well as what we'd like to. This comprehensive field guide has expertise on a huge range of topics, from frying an egg, tying a tie, or brewing coffee, to things the inner utilitarian in all of us aspires to do, like splitting wood, building a fire, growing our own food, or making our own soap. Forty-eight how-tos are organized into five sections: Kitchen, Outdoors, Home, Garden, and Grooming with supplemental sidebars featuring the best tool for the job.
