This classic American memoir is about a farm and its people, of a boyhood on a southwestern Wisconsin hilltop world in the 1930s. Ben Logan grew up on Seldom Seen Farm with his three brothers, father, mother, and hired hand Lyle--"the fifth Logan boy.” The boys discussed and argued and joked over the events around their farm, marked the seasons by the demands of the land, tested each other and themselves, and grew up learning timeless lessons. This paperback edition features Logan's never-before-published afterword that traces the Logan land to an earlier time, bringing the story full circle to the farm and its people.

In the land of beer, cheese, and muskies—where the polka is danced and winter is unending and where Lutherans and Catholics predominate—everybody is ethnic, the politics are clean, and the humor is plentiful. This collection includes jokes, humorous anecdotes, and tall tales from ethnic groups (Woodland Indians, French, Cornish, Germans, Irish, Scandinavians, Finns, and Poles) and working folk (loggers, miners, farmers, townsfolk, hunters, and fishers). Dig into the rich cultural context supplied by the notes and photographs, or just laugh at the hundreds of jokes gathered at small-town cafes, farm tables, job sites, and church suppers. This second edition includes an afterword and indexes of motifs and tale types.

For many urban-dwellers, a Walden-like five acres, two hours outside the city, would be their answer to the American dream. Over the years, writers--usually exurbanites long fascinated with the theme of retreat to the pastoral ideal--have published country books urging the return to rural life. Country books follow two formats--the country life essay and the handbook--and as a group trace changes in society and American values since the mid-1860s. The first book-length study of the country book, this work gives detailed content analyses of both country essays and handbooks, examines the back-to-land movement as reflected in books from 1863 through 1995, and discusses the influence of Henry David Thoreau's Walden on the genre. Included are chapter-length studies of David Grayson (Ray Stannard Baker), Louis Bromfield and Malabar Farm, naturist Hal Borland, Gladys Taber and her Stillmeadow Farm, and Helen and Scott Nearing. Other notable authors discussed are Henry Beston, Lewis Gannett, poet Donald Hall, Haydn Pearson, and Mark Van Doren. The extensive annotated bibliography includes over 200 works.
