This lady is so strong willed, ready to take on anything for her tiny farm, and does a great job. I really enjoyed her animal antics, her with the pigs. and just funny ways of talking on and solving PROBLEMS that came up with her animals . I listened to it two times and will listen to it again, it is very refreshing.
Her attitude about the people in her neighborhood.the way she loves her animals and the attitude when an animal has to be taken for food shows a great attitude and the follow through herself is statement to her character, I have a small farm and I totally understood her feelings
Karen is anawesome she was my favorite, but hubby went along easy to whatever she whants
Yes, I did that. watng for more books from every year the adventure continues
Can be listen to many times , it's fun.
Yes I will listen to this book again there is so much information to take in it can't be done in one reading; However the vast amount of information and origins of folk practices we still do to this day, and don't know why, are fascinating. The wedding customs are a riot and some downright wacky .... but it gets very serious in places... I have had "Bound Away In my wish list for a very long time reading the reviews many said to read "Albion's Seed" first so I did.
But first I started with" How the West Won The Neglected Story of the Triumph of Modernity" (Unabridged) <--- Very true it's not about Cowboys and Indians
Well I'll tell you I just never could see how easily the North could fight a war with the South, but it turns out that they pretty much hated each other already over drastically different religious beliefs and it probably was not that hard to kick off!
The wedding traditions because they were funny.(most but not all)
Well you might want to but I'm not sure you can it gets intense at times; However I did repeat chapters and noted chapters I want to listen to again! I will listen to it as a whole again.
This author paints a very good scene, it is easy to imagine (if you have an inner eye) seeing our American ancestors and how they lived. Some things are very shocking considering how we were taught they behaved. Sometimes draggy but just about the time you say Oh Geezz... I'm reaching for the fast forward... a whole new can of worms pops out and your glad you didn't. This book leaves no doubt that this country was founded on differing Christian religious beliefs, strictly Christian. Even if not all were not very Christ like ....
Sorry this review but the book is 39 hrs long
Audio is good everyone should hear this book.
Very informative book. I loved the history but I did have a sad reaction to this book. I lost trust in the fact that no matter the integrity of generations, it can all be ruined by greed of a few.
Yes I would, I prefer audiobooks.
Well I wasn't planning on listening to this book all in one sitting but that is what happened, then I listened all over again !
I also started the diet modifications right away and so far I have lost 50 pounds in 9 months.I am much healthier and very thankful to Gary Tubes I have not found it hard at all to make this way of eating as a lifetime commitment.
A moving moment for me was when I realized that just by counting to 20 this diet would be a way to get rid of processed food, milk hormones, and focus on healthy food. I was suprised how easy it was to walk away from carbs. The 50 pound weight loss was a breeze after a lifetime of misery on every other diet in the world. I feel so much better than before reading this book. Thankyou Mr. Davis
Buy this book, you won't be sorry!
