Each project, from caring for cast iron to planting with the seasons, is supplemented with expert tips to inspire and empower. Organized into five sections—Kitchen, Outdoors, Home, Gardening, and Grooming—this how-to guide features detailed instructions and original artwork for tasks both simple, such as brewing the perfect cup of coffee, and adventurous, such as fording a stream and reading the sky.

Today, the online shop features more than one thousand products, each made with natural materials by skilled makers from around the world. A select few are included in these pages as the best tools for the job at hand. Consider this book the first step in making everyday a little more extraordinary."
