The Land Remembers Book Cover“This beloved American memoir is about a farm and its people, recollections of a boyhood in Wisconsin’s driftless region in the 1920s and ’30s. Ben Logan grew up on Seldom Seen Farm with his three brothers, father, mother, and hired hand Lyle—’the fifth Logan boy.’ The boys discussed and argued and joked over the events around their farm, marked the seasons by the demands of the land, tested each other and themselves, and grew up learning timeless lessons.”
