Wisdom of Dirt by Charles Pike Book PDF Summary
The American farmer is largely misunderstood as a career choice of hard work but lack the ability to contribute to the true meaning of life in everyday living. This book was written to help the nonfarmers (98 percent of the population) understand why and how farmers think and feel about living in a less complicated but aEURoecommon senseaEUR way of life. It is written from a singular point of view (mine) but with the knowledge that I have grown up and managed a fourth-generation farm that has lived through the Great Depression, World War II, and runaway inflation of the 1980s and the major economic corrections in the early 2000s. This book was written mostly for future generations in my own family, but the life lessons learned from a seventy-year-old farmer apply to anyone who wants to live a aEURoecommon senseaEUR life. Enjoy the Wisdom of Dirt.
