Rural communities are built on working together. Understand how rural community identity is formed through hard labor and good neighbors who help each other with all tasks from butchering to barn raising.
“Rural Wit and Wisdom” by Jerry Apps is a compilation of sayings and advice from farmers in the heartland. This collection of Old-Timer wisdom tells the story of heartland people who work their farms, give back to their communities and appreciate the little things in the same way they have for generations.
