The Early Family HomeBook - 1992
The earliest settlers actually had to carve their new lives out of the forest. Trees covered most of the land. Clearing the land for fields took a long time. But slowly the trees came down and the crops went in. Fences were built and roads were made. By the time the children of the settlers were grown up, they would no longer be living in a log cabin. They would enjoy a comfortable life in a large two-story home made of planks, bricks or stones.
