I enjoyed this book and thought it was a fairly accurate depiction of the average American farmer's lifestyle. Some of the dialogue was a little corny, but overall, a good story.

"Farm" is just a beautiful book about the Midwest, a book of pure knowledge that enlarges the reader by about a thousand acres and one German Catholic family.

You can sit in the kitchen, smell the hogs and the corn and the coffee and listen to the sweet husky voices of slow-talking good-hearted people, and learn a great deal you never knew you ought to know. --Garrison Keillor

Published in 1989 -- set in rural Missouri about an hour east of Kansas City. Also lovely illustrations.
