An explanation of how agriculture and life in Iowa changed from early 1900 to about 1940.

1610 In No Time At All, by Carl Hamilton (read 31 Dec 1980) This is a most amazing book, written by a man born in 1914 and who grew up on an Iowa farm. His vignettes are super poignant, to one such as me, and many of the things he talks about bring back similar memories one has not thought about for a long time. He does kind of emphasize the unpleasant things, and makes one realize just how unpleasant lots of things were. But he also does not talk of some things that I would feel would make interesting vignettes: planting, or digging, potatoes, e.g. Also, one notes the differences--they threw manure on piles--we hauled it out. He makes a big thing out of how bad cleaning chicken coops out was; I never thought that was so much worse than other manure cleaning--I decided this was because we had chicken coops of normal size. They only milked two cows, so milking played a lesser role in his life than in ours. The pictures in this book are worth its price alone. One wishes that one had sought to record all these things on film when we were growing up: except one never thought about how different everything would be in fifty years. A really great book. ( )
