The Land Remembers Book Cover“This is a story about a farm and its people, of a hilltop world in the 1930’s in southwestern Wisconsin. Ben Logan grew up on a farm with his three brothers, father, mother, and hired hand Lyle—’the fifth Logan boy’—and marked the seasons by the demands of the land. The boys discussed and argued and joked over the events around their hilltop farm, testing each other and themselves as they learned the lessons of the farm and growing up.”
