Short essays about growing up on a Michigan farm during the 1930s and 1940s.

The Thumb area of rural Michigan in the 1930s and 1940s was a place where residents led simple lives. They slept well at night secure in the notion that they had put in an honest day’s labor. Home On The Farm provides us with a glimpse of Midwestern Americana during the early Twentieth Century and describes the triumphs and tragedies in that rural environment. Readers, young and old, will enjoy meeting characters like statuesque Grandmother Davis, multi-talented Grandfather Williamson, Jake the horse dog, Cho-lin the champion pig, Rocky the riding horse and a host of others.
The author’s charming and unsophisticated drawings help tell the story of his life on the farm. They complement the narrative and give it meaning and a touch of humor. TO ORDER:
Copies may be ordered from the author at 2820 Monument Dr. NW, Albuquerque, NM 87120-6526 or jrd2820.aol.com for $15.00 (paperback) plus $4.00 (each book) for postage & insurance. (No credit cards, please.)
