REVIEW å United States of Americana Nspiration in the cultural traditions of an earlier time in many areas of contemporary life Compiled by Seattle based writer DJ and entertainer Kurt B Reighley United States. Ultimately I can t deny that this was a very interesting concept for a book especially with North American s current mindset and economic factors More people every day are turning to green alternatives and looking back on how things used to be done before we became a throwaway society The author clearly did a large amount of research before putting pen to paper so to speak and for that I commend himIt was however not what I was hoping for in a book While some parts were definitely interesting with a focus on the history behind things and an aspect of DIY long portions of it were devoted to nothing than profiles of companies that have weathered the blast and are still going strong after 100 years or Which is fine if you don t mind reading chapter after chapter of company profiles I would have rather seen a few profiles of up and comers people or small companies who were really getting into the DIY Watching Spirits green alternatives and looking back on how things used to be done before we became a throwaway society The author clearly did a large amount of research before putting pen to paper so to speak and for that I commend himIt was however not what I was hoping for in a book While some parts were definitely interesting with a focus on the history behind things and an aspect of DIY long portions of it were devoted to nothing than profiles of companies that have weathered the blast and are still House of Gold going strong after 100 years or Which is fine if you don t mind reading chapter after chapter of company profiles I would have rather seen a few profiles of up and comers people or small companies who were really Our Darkest Hours getting into the DIY

REVIEW å United States of Americana Of Americana explores this vibrant cultural phenomenon from the music to the clothing to the food and drink to the rebirth of home canning straight razors burlesue and circus. A great survey of the recent revival of American folk traditions The chapter on music would be particularly informative for anyone wanting to explore the roots of American music My only criticism would be that it would have been nice to see a chapter dedicated to women s fashion it focuses mainly on the guys probably due the author s gender and a little delving into the psychology as to why folk are returning to the practicessounds etc of yesteryear Overall the book is very entertaining Reighley s a funny guy educative and accompanied with lovely illustrations by Aaron Bagley
