Tim Matson surveys an often overlooked aspect of independent living--firelight.
In this completely revised and updated classic, Matson describes in lively detail all the elements of firelight--beginning with an explanation of the lighting system he developed from his Vermont home.
- The romantic history and modern molding of candlepower
- Traditional kerosene lamps
- The versatile Aladdin
- Liquid propane (LP) gas lights
- Kerosene and gas pressure lanterns (the Coleman)
- Incandescent mantle safety
- The "Return of Firelight" from glass-fronted hearths and stoves
In addition, Matson shows how to select, assemble, install, and safely maintain these non-electric sources of light. This guide will be indispensable for vacation homes, camps, boats, RVs, independent homesteads--and anywhere in a blackout. 30 black & white photographs.
