Summary
Contains the reflections, by turns humorous and heart-wrenching, on nature, death, and eternity - all from the perspective of the contrary farmer, Gene Logsdon. Readers will find Logsdon in top philosophical form as he recounts the joys and tragedies from his childhood in Ohio, adulthood, and childrearing, as well as his recent bout with cancer. With each story, Logsdon keeps an eye toward the lessons that farming and his underlying connection to nature have taught him about life and its mysteries
