Too Wet to Plowby Jeanne Simonelli, Charles Winters
Here in words and photographs is the yearly cycle of a reasonably innocent profession, dairy farming. A complex craft, that calls on the physical and intellectual powers of men and women who work in it, requiring rather more character than is required of most of us, and now, in its unnatural twilight, a larger endowment of stubborn hope. The text of this book and the photographs chronicle the varied tasks of each season. Much work, some beauty, capped with heartbreak.
