About this item

Farming remains a cornerstone of the American economy, but few people living in cities and suburbs today are likely to ever have set foot on a modern farm, or seen a crop planted, heard the sound of wind rattling through corn fields before harvest, or witnessed the birth of a baby calf. This book welcomes readers to along in trucks, tractors and combines for a true insider's guide to the fascinating and complex realities of agriculture that very few outside tight knit farm communities are ever able to witness. This season-by-season portrait explores in penetrating detail the complexities of farm life that few urban dwellers ever see.Dirt, Sweat and Diesel is fascinating and intimate, a year-long look at a farmer and his family as they operate a modern midwestern family farm.
