Floyd off the Farm is an autobiography based on the hardship of growing up in the primitive rural area of northern Minnesota. Author Floyd Wachs recounts his life starting from his humble beginning to an unexpected path to a successful career. “I am not a writer,” says Floyd, “which will be adbundantly clear to you even after the first few pages. There will be misspelled words and barnyard vocabulary. Furthermore, this book will not win any Pulitzer Prizes, even in Pine River, Minnesota, or make the bestseller list at Backus. This means I won’t have to suck up to any critic or publishing house. I just have to have the courage to say this is my life, take it or leave it.” Share with Floyd his trials and tribulations growing up poor on a primitive farm, such as sleeping for four months in a chicken coop—in the winter!
