Booklist Review

Through reminiscences, essays, fiction, photography, and artwork, this oversize book celebrates the rural life in both the U.S. and Canada. The illustrations and the text, which presents works in whole or in excerpt, work splendidly in tandem to evoke a lifestyle that, in the face of today's economic realities, is changing its appearance and dynamics. As one contributor says, "No occupation is quite so personally satisfying as farming"; and would readers disagree after enjoying an elegy to the farm kitchen, a radio monologue by Garrison Keillor, and even a commentary on tractor repair and restoration? The book is about memories, and mostly sweet ones; and even the most die-hard city slicker will find this "down on the farm" visit difficult to sneer at.
