The Farm by John Shader is a series of autobiographical vignettes that tell a love story-a love for a special place. Each chapter is a reminiscent retelling of events occurring at Grandpa Brown's 160-acre Michigan "playground." Beginning with boyhood stories and strong themes of family, friendship, and adventure, the book progresses forward through a series of flashbacks amidst the lingering question... should the family allow the farm to be sold? Shader delights the reader with humorous stories of snipe hunting, a kid's system of classifying insects, and touching moments of hunting with his father. The reader will laugh and cry as they experience the life of a boy growing up in a loving family in the 1960's and meeting a place that shaped his journey into manhood more than any other... The Farm.
