In this beautiful book, our dear friend and neighbor Peggy Hart tells wool's colorful and surprisingly epic tale. She shows how it has impacted millions of lives--from immigrants, slaves, and Native Americans to farmers and advertisers. Learn little-known but fascinating facts about US society's changing relationship to wool--for example, how huge flocks of sheep were driven to the California gold fields to feed hungry miners, and why sheep grazed on the White House lawn during World War I. This is a story of technological and social change, marketing forces, and our choices as consumers. Wool is a must-read for anyone who has knitted (or worn!) socks, woven a piece of cloth, or curled up with a warm wool blanket.
