Prepare to be transported to a time and place that you will never forget: a place of hard work and fun; a place of serious activity and foolishness; a place of conflict and love; a place of proud stoicism and warm sentiment. Let yourself become part of the moments of farm country, circa 1950, with twenty-nine poems and forty photographs depicting life’s joys and challenges for the men, women, and children involved with tilling the soil.
Farm Country Moments: Poems, Pictures, and Memories aims to educate and entertain readers of all ages. Youth will learn about the memorable moments that belonged to the previous generations in a way that is relevant to their lives, and older generations will be inspired to remember long-forgotten stories of their youth. Enjoy farm moments and sage advice through poems like Never Cuss the Rain, Spreading Manure on a Snowy Morning, and Shelter of the Barn.
