“Klinkenborg is our modern Thoreau.”—Tom Brokaw
"A marvelous picture of rural life and of families at work. This is a fascinating excursion into American farmland."--Publishers Weekly
From the wonders of alfalfa, the "miracle plant," to barbed wire and the myriad difficulties of operating tractors and side rakes, renowned author Verlyn Klinkenborg paints a stunning and memorable portrait of life on American family farms.
Making Hay gives an unforgettable glimpse of everyday life on the farms of Iowa, Minnesota, and Montana. In beautiful, deceptively simple prose touched with humor and affection, Klinkenborg evokes a way of life at risk, and weaves a marvelous story of the richness of rural living.

I found out about Klinkenborg's work through his "rural life" series. The Rural Life This is an earlier book written back in the 1980s.
It was interesting to find out how important Haying is to rural life. There is plenty of vivid imagery about rural life and also some insights into Verylyn's family history.
