About the Author:

Richard Critchfield is the author of An American Looks at Britain; Those Days; The Long Charade; and a village trilogy Villages, Shahhat, and The Golden Bowl Be Broken.

From Library Journal:

This is a distressing study of the decline of two small farming communities in Iowa and North Dakota by the author of Villages (LJ 5/15/81). In the first chapter, Critchfield discusses the development and decline of rural societies around the world. He then features interviews with prosperous, semi-prosperous, and poor farmers from the two communities who provide important insights into the sociological and economic forces that contributed to the decline of farming in their areas. Critchfield asserts that the survival of the urban sector is dependent upon a thriving rural sector, and he presents proposals for saving family farms and rural communities from prominent people in agriculture. Like Janet Fitchen in Endangered Spaces, Endangered Places ( LJ 3/1/91), Critchfield offers a disturbing look at America's rural infrastructure.
