What began as an ode to the American farmer has evolved into an anthem to an iconic American way of life. Inspiring and moving, the book follows the themes of the heartwarming essay by legendary radio commentator Paul Harvey, “So God Made a Farmer.” Based on the ad watched by millions during The Big Game in 2013, the result is a rich, inspiring book that provides a deeper dive into the lives and work of farmers as well as the photographers who captured them. With over 200 photographs shot by ten world-class photographers, including National Geographic's William Albert Allard, this gorgeous book turns a spotlight on the American farmer, and features every aspect of his/her life in a compelling photographic poem.
I bought this beautiful book at a book store today only to discover it excluded the farmers of the great Midwest... Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Kansas, South Dakota, North Dakota, etc. were not represented. As a Midwesterner my heart was crushed to learn that the farmers of the Midwest weren't invited to the sitting of the family portrait.
