Overview

The Land, the People pays tribute to the American family farm and the people whose daily lives are tied to the soil. Rachel Peden once wrote of this book, "I wanted the land to be the main character, and to write about the family farm, its change, survival, character, and of people's love of the land and need of it as a basic human hunger." Lovingly recreating the story of a family living with the land, Peden breathes life into an abandoned farmhouse where children, long-since grown, once played in the dooryard. This is a very personal book, for author and reader alike, rich in the author's sensibility and craft.
