Plain and Happy Living: Amish Recipes and Remedies by Emma Byler - 1992 Softback Book

This softback copy of Plain & Happy Living: Amish Recipes & Remedies by Emma Byler (Jonas Em) was printed by Goosefoot Acres Press in Cleveland Ohio. It has a copyright date of 1991.

A blurb on the back cover of the book gives a splendid description of what to expect:

“Whether you’ve wondered what daily life is like in an Amish community or merely wish to return to a simpler, less expensive lifestyle, Emma Byler’s Plain and Happy Living gives you the warm, gentle wisdom and practical suggestions of a veteran of simple living. “Not having money meant that we couldn’t just go to the store to buy things we wanted” she says. “[W]e had to make do with what we had . . . for medicine, gardening, housekeeping and caring for our animals.” Emma has a quick cure or fast relief for nearly anything that ails her family, along with time-tested recipes for everything from home-made soap to Amish wedding punch (and the grocery list for a 200 guest Amish wedding supper)!”

The book measures 6” by 9” and is 1/2" thick, with 156 pages including illustrations, an Appendix, and a very helpful Index. It is in good vintage condition, with typical age and use wear including a couple of spots on a few pages. The softback binding is intact and all the pages are unmarked and without tears.
