Item description for Values from the Heartland: Stories of an American Farmgirl by Bettie B. Youngs...

Overview
In the Midwestern United States, blankets of wheat, alfalfa and corn stretch as far as the eye can see. Farmers till the rich soil and harvest its abundance to feed a nation. This is a region where family values and respect for God and country are instilled in citizens from childhood. It was here, growing up in America's heartland, that Bettie Youngs learned the many values of family life: love, respect, honor, loyalty and self discipline, among others. Told here in loving detail are nostalgic stories recollected from Youngs' life--a rich tapestry that allows us to share in the warmth and balance of a principle--centered life. Youngs' life in a large family was not without difficulties, yet through these value-laden stories she shows us how challenging times, when leavened with love and support, can provide strength of character, courage and leadership.

Reviews - What do customers think about Values from the Heartland: Stories of an American Farmgirl?

A Great Collection of Inspiring Short Stories  Apr 16, 2000
This book was particularly poignant for me as it was reminiscent of my own youth, but also that of my parents. Bettie Youngs is a gifted story-teller, but her stories do much more than merely entertain. They remind us of timeless values, sadly all but forgotten by too many of us. Even my children enjoyed some of these stories. Their favorite was "Red Dot." Treat yourself to this and other books by Bettie Youngs.

Great lessons about life and an enjoyable read  Sep 16, 1997
This book was interesting and enjoyable to read but it also contained a lot of wisdom about life. The author does a great job of recreating the excitement and potential of youth in a way that is interesting to young people or adults. I found the book made me look back to lessons I'd learned from my youth that I'd almost forgotten about. It also made me think a little more consciously about the stories in my life that have helped to create my own values and beliefs.
