To my surprise and delight, this book is a series of short stories (many of them no more 2 pages long) written by a farmers' market vendor. It's a refreshing perspective on the life of a farmer and his view of the world around him.
You won't learn how to save the world, start a garden, or enjoy a healthy diet. There's no studies involved, no tasks to perform. This is a simple book, written by a man living a simple life. In fact, it's best read slowly. Perhaps one chapter each day, giving you time to meditate on his insight and carefree observation.
So here's the best part - I've discovered that Google Books offers the entire text of this book on-line for free. So grab a nice hot cup of tea, curl up on the couch, and be prepared to see the world through different eyes. Enjoy!
