(This book cannot be returned.)
Through narrative, poetry and images, this life history account reclaims the silenced voices and life histories of both our aging farmers and aging rural architectures.
Laura Lush seeks out the significance and meaning of her father's life spent on a farm, and his emotional response to the razing of his two bank barns.
