Reviews - What do customers think about Any Dam Fool Can Be A Farmer?

A bittersweet and hard-hitting glimpse into what farm life was really like.  Dec 5, 2006
An Honorable Mention title of the 2006 Independent Book Publisher Awards, Any Damn Fool Can Be a Farmer: Growing Up on a Wisconsin Farm is the true-life memoir of author Bob Knopes, who matured on a small dairy farm during the lean times of the Great Depression. But even though Knopes' father was wont to stoutly declare "Any damn fool can be a farmer!" the truth was that not just any damn fool could apply the necessary money, time, resources, and 14-hour days of labor to successfully keep a farm solvent. A handful of black-and-white photographs illustrate this touching picture of farm life from barn-burning fires to block-in blizzards, and the remarkable changes wrought by technological advancements such as milking machines, threshers, and indoor plumbing. A bittersweet and hard-hitting glimpse into what farm life was really like.
