Last seen sleeping off his wedding night in the back of a 1951 International Harvester pickup, Michael Perry is now living in a rickety Wisconsin farmhouse. Faced with 37 acres of fallen fences and overgrown fields, and informed by his pregnant wife that she intends to deliver their baby at home, Perry plumbs his unorthodox childhood - his city-bred parents took in more than 100 foster children while running a ramshackle dairy farm - for clues to how to proceed as a farmer, a husband, and a father.

Fantastic, made this Alabama gal wish I had grown up in Wisconsin...please don't tell my Wisconsin born husband! As a veterinarian I just enjoyed the lovely stories about being in touch with the animals, land, family and faith. I'm now a committed fan of Mr. Perry's and will go seek his other books.
