Clabbered Dirt, Sweet Grass
This is an excellent read. If you are interested in seeing what farming used to be like this book will show you.
It got five star reviews from Amazon.com. You will see why after reading just the foreword (to read the foreword click on the hyperlink above and go to “search inside this book” then type foreword) It would be very difficult to read this book and not make the connection between the land and the people.
For me it was interesting to see where some of our family traditions came from, and how living and working in time with the seasons really affects the family lifestyle. It is a short but satisfying read. Definitely worthwhile. If you have read it I would like to know what your thoughts are.
