    I remember stories my mom told about the root cellar her dad kept when she was a young girl, so root cellars kind of hold a fascination for me. This book was jam packed with information. She talked about several varieties of cellars to build and the proper way to store root vegetables and fruits in them. She also tossed in some historical trivia pertaining to the subjects being discussed. Anna Hess has a very easy to read writing style.

    This is the most interesting book on setting up and maintaining a root cellar. Their method is the most unusual I've read but I think it would work better than the others I've read. They do their own work and they give you all of their experience that they have all ready done and either worked or flat failed at. Having that information before and knowing what not to do is worth hundreds of dollars. Very factual read. This is the most interesting book on setting up and maintaining a root cellar.
