This newly revised edition of In the Barn uses full-color pictures to show how the barn was the center of activity on an early farm. Different kinds of barns are clearly detailed from the English and bank style barns in wooded areas to the sod barns of the western prairies. Featured topics include: the fun of a barn raising bee; the work of milking cows, winnowing grain, and mucking out stalls; a tools and gadgets section; and seasonal activities including birthing, harvest, and winter storage.
