This well-established illustrator takes an affectionate look at farm life throughout the seasons as he observed them residing on his family's Iowa farm. All the activities of the year are described here, and illustrated in full colour, from clearing the fields in spring to preparing for Christmas. From the butchering of the pigs in springtime to the ploughing of the corn in the summer, Artley describes the many, sometimes tedious, sometimes enjoyable, responsibilities of growing up on a farm. From potato digging in the autumn to milking time in the winter, he provides the reader with many vibrant paintings, illustrating the scenes of farm life for the reader firsthand.
