The Gristmill - by Bobbie Kalman Published by Grabtree Publishing Company, 1990 Author Bobbie Kalman Published 1990 by Crabtree Publishing Company Bobbie Kalman’s acclaimed Historic Communities Series of Children's books provides a close-up view of how people lived more then two hundred years ago. Colorful photos, many taken by the author herself at restored historic villages, help support the fascinating information. Children will have fun learning about: early homes and the settler community—what people wore and the crafts they made—how they spent their leisure time—the values, customs and traditions of the early settlers.
