Girlhood in Michigan by Your Brother Kings
Your Brother Kings writes: "The building of the first log house with its wide, stick chimney; the fireplace filled with huge logs; the bedstead made of tamarack poles, with only one post; are things to remember. Straw ticks were filled with marsh hay. The first table was made of whitewood board. Its legs were like those of a sawhorse. For a cupboard holes were bored in the logs of the house and pins put in to lay the shelves on. Until the household goods came from Detroit, bread was baked in a dish kettle with the spider turned over it and coals of fire on top."
