Powell's City of Books

A collection of histories, trivia, and interviews, Kurt B. Reighley's United States of Americana offers a comprehensive guide to young America's return to the ways of generations past, with immersive chapters on such activities as raising chickens, facial hair grooming, and burlesque. The work reads as the product of the pleasurable task of gathering up one's interests, even if the bottling and branding inevitably quells a bit of the magic. However, should you wish to seriously undergo the task of making jam or to educate yourself on pre-Prohibition cocktails, Reighley has compacted an impressive amount of resources into a relatively short tome.
