Learn about the craftspeople who created useful works of art by hand, objects that have lasted more than 200 years. This book shows how artisans like the wheelwright, cooper, founder, shoemaker, milliner, gunsmith, and many more learned their trades through years of apprenticeship and why the craftspeople were a vital part of the colonial community.
