A tribute to farm and ranch life and the invaluable life lessons and skills that we learned growing up. Hard work, responsibility, being content with little, caring for animals, helping others in need, saving and planning for the future and many other great lessons were learned naturally by growing up on a farm. These lessons are shared within the context of eighteen heartwarming stories from contributors who all write with their own unique voice and style. From stories about caring for animals, growing crops, tearing down barns, fixing tractors, training horses, raising cattle or milking cows, you will laugh cry and reflect upon the difficulties and joys that farm life brought to us. Whether you are raising your family on a farm, ranch, suburb or in the city, you will learn and appreciate the “lost lessons” shared and will want to teach these valuable life skill lessons to your children and grandchildren.
Give the book as a gift to a family member, a friend, or yourself. Always a great value, they are a reminder of love and lessons that will be opened and used over and over.
My new book "Lost Lessons from Life on the Farm" received the following endorsement from Dr. Temple Grandin at CSU:
"Eighteen people tell about their childhoods growing up on a farm or ranch. They learned the value of hard work, responsibility, and ingenuity. Everyone who is interested in farming and rural life would love this book."
If you don't know who Temple Grandin is I suggest you read her book or see the movie made about her life entitled, "Temple Grandin".
Who’s influencing your children’s values and direction in life? Each day do your children spend more time with the TV, internet, video game box and iPod than they do with you as a parent? The prolific amount of entertainment options that are available to our children provide a difficult challenge for parents today. Many children have become addicted to entertainment in its various forms and their parents don’t even know it.
