504    Includes bibliographical references (page 310-321) and 
520    ""The queen of living history" (Lucy Worsley) returns with
       an immersive account of how English women sparked a 
       worldwide revolution-from their own kitchens. No single 
       invention epitomizes the Victorian era more than the black
       cast-iron range. Aware that the twenty-first-century has 
       reduced it to a quaint relic, Ruth Goodman was determined 
       to prove that the hot coal stove provided so much more 
       than morning tea : it might even have kick-started the 
       Industrial Revolution. Wielding the wit and passion seen 
       in How to Be a Victorian, Goodman traces the tectonic 
       shift from wood to coal in the mid-sixteenth century-from 
       sooty trials and errors during the reign of Queen 
       Elizabeth I to the totally smog-clouded reign of Queen 
       Victoria. A pattern of innovation emerges as the women 
       stoking these fires also stoked new global industries : 
       from better soap to clean smudges to new ingredients for 
       cooking. Laced with uproarious anecdotes of Goodman's own 
       experience managing a coal-fired household, this 
       fascinating book shines a hot light on the power of 
       domestic necessity"--|cProvided by publisher.
