As the family farm of yesteryear steadily loses ground to the corporate farm of tomorrow, pundits and plain folks alike bemoan the loss of the homely, down-to-earth rural life that few actually know or remember anymore. Allan G. Bogue is a notable exception. A legendary agricultural, political, and economic historian who has for the last fifty years written about the political and economic forces shaping agriculture, Bogue himself has roots in the family farm-roots he traces in this memoir that is both a thoughtful tribute to the tradition that nurtured him and North America and an authentic, unsentimental portrait of the hard life that most have abandoned. Through descriptions of neighbourly good will, adverse climate, charismatic family relations, and the seasonal tasks demanded by dairy farming, Bogue imparts the rhythms of growing up in rural Ontario in the early years of the twentieth century.
Tracing the family's fortunes through the ups and downs of the economy in the 1920s and 1930s, he draws an absorbing picture of how they and their neighbours farmed, the crops they raised, the livestock they kept, the technology they used, and the stresses, strains, frustrations, sadness, joy, and triumphs they experienced. Firsthand history of a rare and moving sort, his book is at once an elegy for a disappearing way of life and a deftly realised, meticulously reconstructed chapter of North American history. Allan G. Bogue is emeritus professor of history at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. His publications include Bull Threshers and Bindlestiffs: Harvesting and Threshing on the North American Plains and Plain Folk: A Commonplace of the Great Plains.
