There were a lot of interesting points of view represented in this collection of essays, and a few memorable moments, but ultimately I fear that quite a few of the farmers featured are more excited about farming than they are about writing – as they should be. So, it’s a great resource if you’re looking to sample some of the better farm writers out there and maybe as a name recognition tool, but not so great as literary feat.
