Book Description

Do you love a good laugh?

Enjoy clean rural humor from a farmer's daughter!

What happens when a farmer who’s been wishing for a boy ends up with a girlie-girl?

Come along on the humorous and sometimes agonizing adventures from a childhood spent on a farm in the Eastern Oregon desert where one family raised hay, wheat, cattle, and a farm girl.

˃˃˃ Excerpt:

“Let’s see you whip Rocket into shape,” Hayes said, stepping back and nodding his head to Hank.

Hank pulled his hat down on his head, tugged on his gloves, and gave one last look around, like he hoped divine intervention would keep him from riding to his death.

Motioning for Marcy to keep the kids at a safe distance away, Hayes waited until Hank had his left foot in the stirrup and was swinging his right leg over the back of the horse before he gave Rocket a firm smack on the hindquarters.

The show the horse and rider put on for eager spectators could have packed a full house. Although completely unrehearsed and not choreographed in any way, the intricate steps and mind-blowing moves were previously unseen in our hemisphere and most likely won’t be again.

Rocket, who appeared to have every intention of living up to his name, shot straight up in the air so high, our heads craned back to keep from missing any of the spectacular exhibition.

On his way back down to earth, the horse went through a series of dance moves that included the foxtrot, tango, and the hokey-pokey.

Farm Girl Review

What a wonderful Father’s Day read. I began laughing at the Skunk incident and chuckled my way through the whole book.
Taming of the Shrew – hilarious, such a well written visual about this incident. I could see it in my mind’s eye. Wonderful.

Wedding Day Moos, had me in stitches. Shanna draws such a perfect picture with words that made me feel like I had a ring-side seat.

Flogged and Feathered was great, where the overly protective Gus-the-goose waged war on all who came within flogging distance of Dad.

Many more stories, but I don’t want to ruin them for you. Love, love loved it.

Do yourself a favor and get this book and enjoy the frivolous antics of a shy and beguiling farm girl making a tribute to her father. Shanna’s love for her Dad and all-things-family shines through, in her artistic flair with words.

For those of you who could not possibly believe in the life of a little girl who grew up on a farm and actually LIKED it, read this! I found myself on more than one occasion, laughing out loud. The touching relationship between father and daughter is so special that I almost felt as though I was an interloper into their little secerets, "Don't tell Mom!" Shanna tells her story through her own eyes as a young girl and fills it with fresh and joyful interpretations of the seemingly mundane. What could possibly be ordinary about goats, cats, skunks and ...shrew? Oh, now, THAT one you DON'T want to miss! I couldn't get that vision out of my head for days!!! No spoilers, here, you just HAVE to read this. It is like nothing I've read in a while. Kudos to Shanna for sharing, and I hope her father enjoys it only half as much as her readers will! He had the good fortune to live it, we can only read about it and, sigh, wish we could have grown up like that too!

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT BOOK August 7, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
So much fun to read about the other Oregon !! I grew up on an irrigated farm in Eastern Oregon and could relate to this book so well. I laughed so hard my sides ached. l left the farm and the area 50 years ago at the ripe old age of 18 but my heart is still there. Even non farm folk can enjoy this family story

Oh my Gosh!!! This is so funny!!! I am half way through the book and I can't remember the last time I laughed so hard. Shanna has a very special gift of story telling and she shares childhood memories with us. Laughter is good for the soul ... I recommend Farm Girl !!! Again Shanna thank you for sharing some very funny, embarrassing stories.

Shanna Hatfield is an amazing author and after having read so many of her novels it was wonderful to read about her personal childhood. I can imagine where many of her story lines originate from as I read her adventures of her family's farm.

4.0 out of 5 stars Been there, done that September 4, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book, although I did have a little problem identifying with her, which is understandable since I'm male. However, the "little rebel" in her was much appreciated and I remember my stepfather telling me "don't tell your mom about this" and I remember the little bribes along the way to ensure my silence. I didn't live on a farm like she did, but I have spent time on a farm with my grandfather, and I am intimately familiar with all the little chores that needed to be done, and as I was still young, I got those jobs that nobody else wanted. I laughed through this book most of the time, although when she got injured a few times, that was not funny, and I identified with those "war injuries" too. I think this is a book for everyone if you just want some down home stories and humor, and I know most girls will love this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Farmer's Daughter August 17, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Usually I am sceptical when a reviewer says he/she laughed out loud. Usually I find some humor, but this time the reviewers are spot on. Maybe if you don't have personal experience with farm life you won't enjoy this as much; but, having grown up with dairy cows, I found her experiences with Attila hilarious. Hank's bronco ride had me laughing out loud. The love she felt for her family comes through: the closeness she shared as her Dad's sidekick, and the scares she gave her poor Mother! I'm happy to say that she must have a good editor/proofreader. Only a couple of goofs, like phased for fazed slipped through.
Not enough to disturb the reading enjoyment of this old teacher. I gladly recommend this memoir, and plan to read some of this author's fiction.

Growing up on a farm in the Midwest and still living on that farm I can certainly relate to Shanna Hatfield's "adventures". It surely brought back a lot of memories so please don't think of this book as pure fiction. I did not have brothers but followed my father and grandfather like a shadow and like Shanna avoided house hold chores like a plague. Even if you have never set foot on a farm this book is a great read and believe me it could happen and probably did.

I liked the easy flow of this book, more like a collection of memorable incidents in Shanna's life than consecutive chapters of a story, it does however hold ones interest. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Just plain boring.
This is one boring book. And I grew up on a farm! Why anyone would find this book amusing is beyond me. I quit reading it after the first chapter and removed it from my Kindle.
