FARM COLLECTOR: HARVESTING HERITAGE

Harvesting Heritage: 150 Years of the American Farm, a special collector's edition featuring more than 35 great essays from Sam Moore, author of Let's Talk Rusty Iron as featured in Farm Collector!

As a student of the past, Moore learned his lessons well. Paying careful attention to instructions from his elders, he not only learned the old ways but gained a full appreciation for them. Today, he can tell you not only how farms were once operated, but why farmers did things the way they did. In his regular columns, Moore brings long-forgotten characters to life: neighbors, harvest crews, local mechanics, and farm wives of decades past make encore appearances, sharing their wisdom and a laugh or two. Early farm practices and the routines of everyday life of half a century ago are recounted in a fresh new way, flavored both with nostalgia and a healthy dose of reality. Sometimes the old ways were the best ways; other times, not so much.

Deeply researched and beautifully written, Moore's essays recapture a time now irretrievably lost - but easily glimpsed through the pages of this exciting new edition.
