For more than 50 years, beloved artist Bob Artley has delighted us with his distinctive, folksy recording of farm history. In Bob Artley’s world, every moment of farm life--from chores to walking to school--is an opportunity to impart his wisdom and insight into the rural way of life. His wonderful artwork and stories reflect his sense of pride about the country and farm heritage and speak to anyone with a farming background, or to those who yearn for simpler times. Bob Artley’s Book of Farm Chores is a delightful look at the farm chores facing a kid--many of them Artley’s own remembrances. From milking cows to baling hay, Artley presents farm life with just the right amount of whimsy, nostalgia, and wisdom.
