Stay-at-home shelfie #8

Here's a dandy shelf. Non-fiction books detailing what life and customs were like during different eras of American history, which always makes for enjoyable reading. I mentioned Home Life in Colonials Days in this 2012 post. Huckleberry Hill was also discussed in 2012. And then the books veer to essays and descriptions of modern times, with volumes by Verlyn Klinkenborg, Wendell Berry and James Rebanks. The Caitlin Doughty book should probably be paired with Jessica Mitford's The American Way of Death, from an earlier shelf. And the Michael Pollan book is kind of an outlier here. It truly belongs elsewhere, thematically. Finally, there is indeed a book titled Cattle of the World.
