The book is wonderful; it has some amazing pictures that really capture the life of a farmer. It is more of a coffee table book, though. There are some tidbits of information about the photographers, but not much actual reading material. Most of the pictures have a line of information indicating where the picture was taken and on who's farm, but there isn't really any direct information about the farmers, their lives, or what they do. If they had included the occasional page of information on what has driven that particular person to keep the farming tradition alive or some hardships they have had to endure, that would have pushed the book over the edge and I'd have given it five stars. Amazing photography from very talented people though.

Great gift for my famer and former FFA member and my farmer uncle. We all need to remember that without a farmer we would not have food to eat. Also I love that Dodge/Ram Trucks is giving proceeds from each book sold to the National FFA. Great Buy

I was not aware that Paul Harvey had completed an essay on farming and this seemed to be a great gift for my father. He and I have spent many hours in the tractor which included the Paul Harvey show and have always enjoyed hearing "The Rest of the Story". The pictures are beautiful and Paul Harvey is an eloquent speaker. Highly recommended for all farmers and those that would like a view of the lifestyle!

Ordered this book for my husband who is a farmer. He really enjoyed the Paul Harvey segment about farmers. The photos in the book are well taken but there are very few from the middle of the country where we live. Most are from the east or west coast or the south central. More variety would have been a plus.

This is an excellent portrayal of the farm life in the United States. We ordered another one to give as a gift for a life long farmer.

What an incredible photo collection. I grew up, and work with, farms, so this hits a special place for me. That said, I think anyone may be moved to tears as they look through this book and see what goes in to producing the food bought at the grocery store.

If you need a new coffee table book, this cover goes well with any decor. If you want a book to look through for a pick me up on that rough day, settle in with this book and realize there is still good in the world. It's a nice blend of family farms, vegetables and animals,and focuses on the scenery and people surrounding producing food.

What a beautiful book! Something I'll enjoy for a long time! My only complaint is that they left out New England farmers, as far as I could tell! Seems like people whose fields grow rocks ought to get some credit. =)

This book is GREAT! I grew up "in the country" and it really hits home! Makes me think of my grandfather. Purchased for my brother (a farmer) and he loved it as well. Can't read the poem without crying. Love the pictures. GREAT GREAT book!
