For his fifteenth birthday in 1805, young Noah Blake’s parents gave him a little leather bound diary in which he recorded the various activities on his father’s farm in New England. Eric Sloane has taken Noah’s notebook with its brief comments and expanded the daily entries with explanatory narrative and his own delightful drawings. For grades 6 to adult.
