Life doesn’t come with a manual. Or, at least it didn’t until Kaufmann Mercantile released this guide book. How to Split Wood, Shuck an Oyster, and Master Other Simple Pleasures is an instruction manual on basic joys in life. It will teach you how to smoke meats, read the night sky, preserve food, and so much more. These are basic skills that seem to have been lost along the way. The 228-page book will look to bring back the wisdom many of our forefathers possessed. How can you cure a stomach ache with a homemade drink? What’s fire cider and how can you whip some up? How do you poach the perfect egg? Pick up this book and find out.
