Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the butchering of the pigs in springtime to the plowing of the corn in the summer, Bob Artley describes the sometimes tedious, sometimes enjoyable, aspects of growing up on an American farm. Artley's farm is neither ideal nor outmoded, but simply his world as it was in a particular time and place. His clear (and sometimes poignant) recollections of rural life through the seasons are beautifully captured in the detailed watercolors and line drawings that fill the book. Here is a fascinating and informative account of the past on Artley farm - a past that includes both the smell of new-mown hay and the stench of manure.

Synopsis:

From the author of the best-selling Memories of a Former Kid. Artley, raised on his family farm in Hampton, Iowa, describes the sometimes tedious, sometimes enjoyable, responsibilities of growing up on a farm.

Synopsis:
