By Jim Ellis

While our vision is pummeled with 24-hour news and our minds soak up electronic stimuli; while our relationships are shaped by instant messages and electronic mail; while our tractors are governed by satellites, our food is sprinkled with additives, and our health is dictated by insurance companies, our memories remain rooted in our brains like tiny territorial soldiers. And no one can muster up memories better than Jim Ellis. 
Ellis has taken us back to terra firma—the farm where he was raised—and has restored a modicum of peace and quiet, the natural order of life and death, sustainability, real-time economics, manual labor, and, thank Do you see what I see? goodness, a little quiet. In doing so, and in the gentlest way, lessons are learned. Read this book to your grandchild. Make it required reading for your teenager. Generations X and Y will find it therapeutic. Baby boomers will wax nostalgic and may start looking for rural real estate. The rest will say, "Oh yes. I remember!"
