THE ISLAND OF SARDINIA AND ITS PEOPLE MAKING READY FOR HER PRESSING A familiar sight in Sardinian villages is the housewife seated at the door of her home with her large sad-iron. She fans the charcoal into life to heat the iron. TENDING THE OVEN IN A DESULO COTTAGE Dry mountain underbrush is used as fuel in these ovens of mud. Long spits of mutton are roasted in them for the wedding feasts, which sometimes last for several days.
