Granddaughter of immigrant New England farmers whose way of life she memorialized to much acclaim in her first two books, the author explores the place of the family farm as it has evolved from the Pilgrims' brutal progress at Plymouth to the modern world, where much of our food is produced by industrial agriculture while the small farm is both marginalized and romanticized. A moving, graceful elegy for the American farm by way of narrating what land has meant to her family and herself.
