We've been reading Farmer Boy as part of our Farm-to-Table study this spring. After reading chapter twelve we hit Google to see why Nick Brown accepted rags for his tinware.
What did we find? A fascinating blog entry about rag paper! I'm looking forward to reading more of Nancy Cleveland's blog, As a Laura Ingalls Wilder Researcher Thinks.
Before finding that, we found this. I hear a roadtrip beckoning me!
