Dissecting everything from tractors and pigs to fences, hay bales, crop rotation patterns, and farm tools, Julia Rothman’s “Farm Anatomy” gives a richly entertaining tour of the quirky details of country life. From the shapes of squash varieties to the parts of a goat; from how a barn is constructed to what makes up a beehive, every corner of the barnyard is uncovered and celebrated.
