For years, this book sat by the bed I slept in when I visited my grandparents (which was probably 1000 days as a child!) I reached for this diary all the time - to read about projects Noah did with his father, about the simple ways they solved common problems, about the tools and types of wood and engineering considerations early Americans worked through. The diagrams and drawings are fantastic (like all Sloane books) and even as an adult I could conjure up those pictures in my mind fondly. I bought this larger hardcover version for my kids and my 2nd son loves it. I think that for any child that loves to build things and solve problems, this is a great book to own.

I've always enjoyed Eric Sloane's drawings, but with this book he couples his beautiful drawings with a diary kept by a young man living during the early 19th century. What life was like back then is presented in a unique way with some of the more obscure references explained and/or embellished by Sloane. In short, this book is a understated masterpiece that not only presents a time capsule of what once was, but also helps the reader understand how much has been lost along the way.

This book should be required reading for all children. The story provides a an exceptional view into the life of an early American boy with all of the joys and limitations involved with a life without electricity, cars or supermarkets. Windows and sugar were not available except as rare treats. But people had lives of great joy and purpose without all of these modern conveniences. A valuable lesson for all in the modern world.

My 9 year old son just loves this book. He studies the drawings and has really piqued his interest in American history. He applies the knowledge and perseverance to his sports life as well. Highly recommended!
