The classic story of a 1930s transplanted New Yorker in the rural Midwest.

“What a welcome resurrection! Here is a voice from the 1930s that speaks to the dilemmas we're certain to face in the next century. His mind moves easily between farming and philosophizing, between strategies for the survival of households during the Great Depression and strategies for the renewal of our ailing civilization. I would have walked a long way to meet this man. I'm glad to have his book.”

Scott Russell Sanders, author of Hunting for Hope
