A modern DIY treatise, it is not. Returned to print as part of its 100th anniversary, How to Do Things: A Timeless Guide to a Simpler Life is equal parts handy and humorous. It covers evergreen subjects like ridding a yard of poison ivy and mending a fence post, to decidedly rural, turn-of-the-century topics like throwing a barn party or organizing a potato-peeling party. All its wisdom and humor are presented alongside original illustrations from the 1919 first edition, making this a delightful take on early 20th-century homesteading.
