Great Possessions: An Amish Farmer's Journalby Kline
Reading Great Possessions is like taking a walk around David Kline's Amish farm with him in every season. Through his simple, elegant prose, Kline conveys the joy and splendor of not only observing the natural world on his small farm, but of actually participating in nature's perennial cycle. Kline and his family and brethren go beyond simply coexisting with nature; they become stewards, shepherds, and ultimately advocates for the gracefulness of working the land.

The professional reviewers have said what I'd like to say and they say it better. I would simply say that for wonderful curl up by the fire, or rainy day reading, this book is a peaceful walk through the seasons. It is 'real' and unpretentious. Beautifuly written.
