I have heard my grandfather(Big Daddy) Sidney Bearden b.1918 say they were so poor growing up” that they had cracks in the floors and could watch the chickens under the house.
Also”when the depression hit we didn’t even know about it we just kept on”….they survived on what they grew and from the game taken around there house just like the Bearden pioneers had done for hundreds of years.
This book is a compilation of some of the funny and helpful tips from our past history. Some recipes and tips date back to 1770s. One or two sound a little dangerous and I would never try them myself, but I’ve included then in this book for their humorous and historical value. A few are useful, especially for our ‘green’ society today
