A various collection of tales, songs, and old-time sayings true to the pioneer spirit. From the history of building a log cabin to pioneer beauty secrets, this book is sure to be of interest to all. A perfect source for old-time recipes for molasses cakes and skillet cornbread that will take you back to our almost forgotten past.

Step inside the door of Log Cabin Pioneers as Wayne Erbsen tales you on a personal journey of finding and restoring an historic log cabin. By the magic of a crackling fire, he'll introduce you to authentic pioneers who will sing you ancient songs, spin yarns about Davy Crockett, Daniel Boone and Thomas Jefferson, and tell spell-binding tales of bear hunting with moonshine or give you advice on how to buy a mule.

Join other settlers in a house raising, hew logs for a cabin, shop in an old-time general store, eat ash cake and dance your socks off at an old-fashioned barn dance.

Includes remedies, superstitions, romantic advice, 143 vintage photos, words & music to 19 songs.
