Coop

by Michael Perry

In over his head with two pigs, a dozen chickens, and a baby due any minute, the acclaimed author of Truck: A Love Story gives us a humorous, heartfelt memoir of a new life in the country. Last seen sleeping off his wedding night in the back of a 1951 International Harvester pickup, Michael Perry is now living in a rickety Wisconsin farmhouse. Faced with thirty-seven acres of fallen fences and overgrown fields, and informed by his pregnant wife that she intends to deliver their baby at home, Perry plumbs his unorthodox childhood--his city-bred parents took in more than a hundred foster children while running a ramshackle dairy farm--for clues to how to proceed as a farmer, a husband, and a father. And when his daughter Amy starts asking about God, Perry is called upon to answer questions for which he's not quite prepared. He muses on his upbringing in an obscure fundamentalist Christian sect and weighs the long-lost faith of his childhood against the skeptical alternative ("You cannot toss your seven-year-old a copy of Being and Nothingness"). Whether Perry is recalling his childhood ("I first perceived my father as a farmer the night he drove home with a giant lactating Holstein tethered to the bumper of his Ford Falcon") or what it's like to be bitten in the butt while wrestling a pig ("two firsts in one day"), Coop is filled with the humor his readers have come to expect. But Perry also writes from the quieter corners of his heart, chronicling experiences as joyful as the birth of his child and as devastating as the death of a dear friend. Alternately hilarious, tender, and as real as pigs in mud, Coop is suffused with a contemporary desire to reconnect with the earth, with neighbors, with meaning . . . and with chickens.

Dust

by E. Haldeman-Julius Marcet Haldeman-Julius

"Dust" is a gritty novel, and a depressing read. It runs to 251 pages in this edition, in a large print using a small format page, so is not lengthy, but the plot takes in three generations of struggle of the Wade family on a Kansas farm. Emanuel and Marcet ran a farm in Girard, Kansas, so the feel for the life of a farming family is there and I suspect that the detail of the fictitious Wades is in fact fairly true to life.

10 Steps Towards Success

by Henry Osal Georgia Louise Snelgrove

SUCCESS is hard to define. I like to say that success is a matter of each individual, that each person has and builds their own. In my experience as an international coach, I have worked with people who have fame and money, but who feel unhappy. Working together, we have managed (well, they have managed on their own) to find the path towards HAPPINESS. In this brief and easy to read manual, I want to make you think and to understand that this path isn't really that complicated at all. It is at anybody's reach. It is not about money: it is about hard work and hope. Do you want to be happy? Do you want to be successful? THIS MANUAL IS FOR YOU. LET US WALK DOWN THE PATH TOGETHER.
