Dirt Farmer Wisdom by JoJo Jensen

You won't be remembered for your fleet of tractors," JoJo Jensen's grandpa used to say - especially not on his farm. A dirt farmer in Nebraska in the 1930s, he farmed without machinery or irrigation. The farm weakened during the Depression, but Grandpa Jensen's legacy is rich. He instilled in his family a way of looking at life and making it better by just tweaking the small parts. With timeless tidbits of insight, old-fashioned farm stories, and 36 poignant half-tone images of farm life, Dirt Farmer Wisdom recalls an almost forgotten time. It brings us down to earth, gently guiding us toward a simpler, more satisfying life. Countless nuggets of farm-speak common sense, like "Stop cussing the mule and load the wagon" and "No point digging a sink hole," remind us that "You don't get what you don't ask for" and "You can't catch water with a fist." Lifestyles change, but genuine homespun common sense works every time.
