This Old Barn: A treasury of family farm memories
Anyone who grew up on a farm - and people who don't know a haymow from a hayfork - will appreciate this collection of tales about barns and their important role on the farm. From round to octagonal barns, barn dances to barn hex signs, this book covers all attributes that make barns a distinct American legacy -even barn billboards that promoted tobacco or tourist attractions.
The 144-page book is edited by Michael Dregni, with a foreword by well-known author and humorist Roger Welsch, and continues the Voyager Press farm series that began with This Old Tractor and This Old Farm.
Stories include recollections about barns, from sheltering livestock during harsh winter months to storing the family's tractor and implements, or even a place for all-important community gatherings. Noted farm writers like Patricia Penton Leimbach and Justin Isherwood contributed to the book, which also includes stories provided by the National Trust for Historic Preservation's 'Barn Again!' program.
Besides the fine writing and entertaining tales, the intricate artwork and dramatic, unusual photography within the book will certainly delight readers. The book contains 100 color and black-and-white photos, as well as illustrations by renowned farm artists Eric Sloane, Bob Artley and Grant Wood. Historical images and vintage advertisements round out the book's attractive character.
