Summary This book presents ways to explore and teach history outside the traditional classroom experience--by the study of historic photographs, mail-order catalogs, cartography, historic house museums and villages, the 1876 Centennial, plants and natural material culture, and regional studies through what the author calls above-ground archaeology.
