9780944079058: Centennial Farm: How Six Generations Farmed the Land
From the Back Cover:

Relive the joys of the American family farm. Learn how six generations worked the land in the 1800s and 1900s. Share this family's defeats and joys...told with refreshing, unpretentious enthusiasm and honesty. Life on the family farm had more than its share of hardships, diseases, chronic shortages of money and battles with bureaucrats and bankers, but the beauty of nature, beloved animals and the support of family members saw the farm through it all. 76 chapters dealing with farm life handed down through six generations of family spun stories are illustrated with more than 550 photographs. Written by three generations of this Centennial Farm family that farmed the same land since 1853. There's a generous helping of farming pleasure to be found on every page.

Review:

A heartwarming story of six generations of one family on a farm in Michigan. Follow a farm family's dreams and use of technologies from horse powered days to the present. I particularly enjoyed "82 Reasons why Farming is the Best Way of Life." -- Small Farm Today, June 1998

Beyond nostalgia! This volume covers a family's memories, keepsakes and traditional farmlife values in such a pleasing manner that the reader cares not where the farm is located. Between the covers of this tremendous book lies a wealth of information, yet it can be opened anywhere to scan a single specific chapter...it's like taking a trip down memory lane! -- Farm Journal, 1998

I would highly recommend this book for anyone currently farming, who has farmed or has wanted to farm. The pictures are wonderful, the stories are down-to-earth-the-way-it-was! This book could also serve as a unique way of sharing the history of farming with the younger generation. -- Farm and Dairy, November 6, 1997

The book is filled with family-album-type photos (on every page), anecdotes, and lists of "favorites" by various family members. This book helps you "go home again" if you've left the farm. If you are still farming or live in the country, it may help you create your own memories. -- Farmer's Advance
