The sonorous voice of narrator Rhett Samuel Price takes the listener on a unique historical journey of America as exemplified by people who make things with their hands. This social study highlights many artisans, especially African-Americans and Native Americans, whose names have been lost to history. Price's leisurely pacing underscores the nature of craft itself. He provides a subtle shift in tone for the many quotes and passages from primary sources. Beginning in Colonial times, the handiwork of craftspeople was considered essential--until it was forever changed by the Industrial Revolution. The narrative progresses into the twentieth century, offering new insights on the Arts and Crafts, Craftivism, and Maker movements, and ending with the social aspects of Pandemic mask-making.
