Chopping wood in the fall, hauling sap buckets in the spring, and weeding, howing, and weeding again in the summer: That is life on a farm in the north. It is also seven months of snow; sloppy, impossible mud season; and hot days of haying. Who would miss growing up in such a place?
A love of life and a love of place shines through in Natalie Kinsey-Warnock's richly imagined prose. Illustrated with Mary Azarian's beautiful woodcuts, this book reveals
how chores lead straight to the best kind of fun: night-swimming in the pond, skiing off the barn roof, and finding new gray kittens in the haymow with their eyes still closed. And at story's end, readers from cities, towns, and the country will ask themselves, What would we miss most about our home?
