Up with the rooster, to bed with the sun, and if the farmers a woman, its a good bet theres always more work waiting. Holding household and family together, women farmers daily, quietly perform heroic labors just to eke a livelihood out of the land. Women have always farmed, when death or war left them to fend for themselves, but today they might choose to farm, and, in a time when farming is a shrinking occupation, their choices have expanded. Some women are only at home on the range; others, more hearth-bound, see the farm as an extension of home and family life. Some farm to feed their families; others, running huge corporate operations, farm to feed nations.

These are the farmers that Women of the Harvest celebrates. In twelve illustrated profiles, the book introduces readers to women who work the land, raising livestock and crops, and, in doing so, uphold and transform a tradition as old as agriculture itself. Their stories, drawn from farms across the country, are truly in the American grain.

Review: Women of the Harvest: Inspiring Stories of Contemporary Farmers

Nutzerbericht  - Smpaetz - Goodreads

The stories were very interesting to read. I found i was disappointed with the photography of the book. I expected higher quality and better composition from a book with so many photos. It looks like it would be a great coffee table book but it was not of a very high quality. Vollständige Rezension lesen
