Review of The Writer’s Guide to Everyday Life in Colonial America

For the writer who is researching a novel on Colonial America, this is an invaluable tool. It is easy to read, indexed well and gives a quick overview of hundreds of topics of everyday life in the American Colonies. So many non fiction reference guides are so in depth and interested in looking scholarly, that they are useless. Dale Taylor has done a terrific job of sharing everything from trades in the Colonies to cooking, from clothing to firearms, from travel to housing. For some reason, it is currently unavailable on Amazon, but I am sure this is only temporary. It has been a staple at my house for many years. I highly recommend it.

  1. I am starting to write a young adult work of fiction about the American Colonies and found this book over on Barnes and Noble, if anyone is interested.
