Editorial Reviews

Review

"Bryan Jones is that rare thing, a real farmer who also writes. The Farming Game is the one book I've seen . . . that I would give to someone who was thinking of moving to the country and actually supporting himself or herself off the land. . . . Anyone who picks it up [won't be able to] stop laughing. First at the dozen portraits of different types of farmers. . . .Then at various barbed asides in the three long essays on how farmers can and do make money. . . . Jones has a wicked wit. [And his] book is remarkably educative. Mixed with the humor is a mass of information and analysis. . . . The reality of farming is here as other people very seldom see it."-Noel Perrin, Smithsonian.

About the Author

Bryan Jones maintains strong ties to the land and teaches reading at McCook Junior High School in McCook, Nebraska. His articles have appeared in New Farm, New Land Review, North Dakota Quarterly, and other magazines. In a new afterword, he discusses the current status of “the farming game.”

Format: Paperback
The characters portrayed here you've either met or after reading you'll wish you had. Jones does an excellent job weaving the trials and tribulations of farming and ranching with the truly unique characters that are found down on the farm. I'd highly recommend it.

By Jrc55419 on June 20, 2012
Format: Paperback
Written in the early 1980's this book is still quite relevant. It's a great read - very well written and funny - and it presents very clear lessons on agricultural economics in an approachable format.

I recommend this book as a great way to learn something while being entertained.
