    an absolutely beautiful look at rural New York agricultural life, beginning with a generation that is slowly starting to leave this plane. The pictures are magnificent, the conversations poignent. Harper does an excellent job of not romanticizing agricultural life in the North Country, but at the same time succeeds in capturing some of its virtues, which we may have forgotten as technology has replaced our horses, and a very few men replaced our work crews. This book was very much the closest I [...]

    Beautiful photographs and narrations by farmers about life pre-1940's when tractors came into use and the neighborly ways of helping others out stopped, and farmers became more part of the commodity system, reluctantly. And they became more isolated. And had to adapt, get bigger, or get out. Only now is there room for smaller agriculture, and are those big ways being questioned.

    Many farmers in the north will see their grandparents in this. My inlaws are very different from this sample group in New York. Harper make too much of technology as the leader in soicial changes on the farm.
