Kentucky Home Placeby Lee Dew
Capturing the stories of seven generations of the Boyd family of western Kentucky, Kentucky Home Place is an uplifting tale of determination and the daily struggle to keep the family farm. This eleventh title in the New Books for New Readers series spans nearly two hundred years and shows the progress of farming from horse-drawn plows to today's tractors with air conditioning and two-way radios.
Lee Dew follows the fictitious Boyd family from their land claim in 1799 to the present day. As the final writer in the family journal tells her grandson, "These stories are about your family, yes, but they are also about this farm we call The Home Place. This farm is special because it is our family home and the home of those who came before us. It is important for every person to know who they are and where they came from".
