Richard Rhodes discusses Farm: A Year in the Life of an American Farmer.

Author Richard Rhodes shares his thoughts on the current state of American agriculture in Farm: A Year in the Life of an American Farmer, published by Simon and Schuster. His experience is based mainly on a nine-month period he spent with a Missouri farm family, alias Tom and Sally Bauer and their children. During that time he found "how different farming and farmers are from the stereotype." Rhodes goes on to discuss federal farm programs, which he feels are aimed at helping agri-business and not the individual farmers. Also, he talks about the virtues of the American farmer and how the entrepreneurial spirit of farming continues. (timspalding)… (more)
