Indiana University Press is pleased to be able to offer the first two titles in the Oral History Project, "Memories of Hoosier Homemakers", directed by Eleanor Arnold. These books retrieve and celebrate the lives of ordinary homemakers. "The basic tenet of this project," according to Mrs. Arnold, has been to prove, both to the world and to the women themselves, that their lives have value, dignity, and worth." - "Feeding Our Families" edited by Eleanor Arnold. This book deals with raising and preserving fruits and vegetables, butchering and curing meat, milking and churning, cooking, baking, buying and selling groceries, social eating, and related topics. "So I think it was at home we learned to be self-supporting, and not to buy much stuff. Mother never bought. Home raised and home grown, home cooked and home canned, home baked. And we didn't waste anything. We didn't have much money, but I say we lived real good." - Grace Heinzman, 86, Hamilton County, "Memories of Hoosier Homemakers", Eleanor Arnold, Editor and Project Director.
