Follow along as the Roberstons, a pioneer family living on a 1840 farm in the backwoods, lead you through a year of their lives. Learn how to tell time by the sun, finger spin, make butter, and much more! Wonderful stories and drawings tell about the sights, sounds, and smells of cornhusking bees, making maple syrup, or sheep shearing. A delightful blend of fact and historical fiction. pb.
