GREAT POSSESSIONS: AN AMISH FARMER'S JOURNAL
Author: David Kline
Organized in four sections corresponding to the seasons, this account by an Amish farmer of his life in Southern Ohio celebrates his daily labors, his family, and, most importantly, the flora and fauna of his 70-acre farm. He works his land with horses and without electricity.
He describes the proper preparation of Sassafras tea, maple sugaring in late winter, chopping firewood in autumn, and rejoices in the vast diversity of the birds.
