Críticas:

Whether a friend harbours a creative hankering or is just fascinated with a bygone era, this inspiring book will show them how sustainability has always been with us. Ben Peel, Waterstone's Science Museum A fascinating book which will inspire everyone, whether as a practical guide or just a brilliant read. There are things here which I have always wanted to try out - and now I can! Miranda Krestovnikoff, presenter of BBC's Coast A wonderfully informative catalogue of the kind of knowledge we are losing but would be wise to preserve. Zac Goldsmith, environmentalist A beautiful and practical book which is ideal for looking at whilst dreaming of bygone days, or else for finding ways to spread money a little further whilst learning something useful. Just a slight word of warning, if you buy at as a present and then look inside you may need to buy another copy as it will be hard to give away. Steve Birt, Waterstone's Gloucester A fascinating book Bill Purdue's Book Blog, http://billpurdue.wordpress.com/ This is a great book which everyone should read. Although some of these crafts may be associated with a bygone era, they are as relevant today as they have ever been and there is something for everyone to learn. Hours of amusement! Jimmy Doherty, presenter of BBC's Jimmy Doherty's Farming Heroes It's a treasure... a lovely book, full of fascinating information and useful advice. Splendid on hedge-laying - I am now hooked on Hooper's hedge hypothesis - and on threatening an unproductive fruit tree with an axe. However, I am worried that each time I pick it up it falls open at 'Milking a cow'. I have no cow: is the book trying to tell me something? Adam Hart-Davis, writer and broadcaster Lost Crafts: Rediscovering Traditional Skills by Una McGovern is one for the more serious craftsperson. A blend of social history and practical instruction, this handsome book will have you coopering, whittling and smocking in no time. McGovern makes the dream of never shopping again seem like a reality, and teaches a sobering lesson about the extent to which, until recently, the things we had were made by us or by people we knew, so we valued them more and wasted them less. Melissa Katsoulis, The Times Christmas Books 2008: Back to basics, The Times A blend of social history and practical instruction, this handsome book will have you coopering, whittling and smocking in no time. McGovern makes the dream of never shopping again seem like a reality, and teaches a sobering lesson about the extent to which, until recently, the things we had were made by us or by people we knew, so we valued them more and wasted them less. Melissa Katsoulis, The Times Christmas Books 2008: Back to basics, The Times From arts to crafts, here's a perfect Christmas present for the credit crunch. Una McGovern's Lost Crafts: Rediscovering Traditional Skills is a serious book telling you how to set about all those things you have been paying other people to do, such as beekeeping, coppicing, milking a cow, skinning rabbits, pickling, smoking and making cider, lemonade, butter, cheese, jam and marmalade.Of course, most of these are easier done in the country than the inner city, including foraging for wild food - berries, nuts and mushrooms. You are advised to pick black-berries before September 29 because that is when the devil is supposed to urinate on them. On reflection, choose recipients of this present carefully. Christopher Hudson, The Daily Mail "The pictures worth 1,000 words: Illustrated Books Round Up" In an era when we are re-thinking our habits because of the rising costs of food and fuel, a revival of traditional ways of life has perhaps never been so relevant. The Scots Magazine Beautifully illustrated, this is a timely publication as more of us are looking to relearn the simple, practical skills that will help us towards more sustainable living. Devon Life A delightful new book Geoff Ward, Mysterious West Podcast Week 75, Western Daily Press [A] terrific book, which I've been reading avidly. I strongly recommend it, and also the new companion volume, Lost Lore, which covers a variety of clever everyday stuff, not all of it absolutely needed every day. John-Paul Flintoff, The Sunday Times
