Story excerpt:

“Let the earth cause grass to shoot forth,” Jacob recited quietly to himself, “and vegetation to bear seed, and fruit trees to yield fruit according to kind…” He paused, considering the implications of the words to follow, before continuing, “…the seed of which is contained within, and upon the earth.”

Reflecting further upon the Biblical message, Jacob Mast leaned back and felt the sharp table edge press ever more insistently against his spine as he sat with his eyes closed and considered the years, as well the fruits of his labor. He remembered the first time he’d come to explore this place, and how the first time he heard them the words “Genesee Valley” spoke to his mind of Genesis—and so seemed, given his quest and disposition, to suggest the possibility of finding and restoring a lost Eden.

About the Author

I live on a small and mostly defunct farm in western New York, where the events of a typical day include writing and walking my dogs—items not necessarily listed in order of priority. (At least not from the dogs' point of view.)

This book tells a small part of the simple life of an amish man and his thoughts and musings of family and life.

Well-written, but requires a substantial level of comprehension on the part of the reader. Not your 'typical' Amish story, but rewarding (if somewhat troubling) in its own right.
