THIS BLESSED EARTH A Year in the Life of an American Family Farm By Ted Genoways Illustrated. Norton & Company. Farmers are fatalists. Rick Hammond, the Nebraska farmer at the heart of Ted Genoways’s new book, This Blessed Earth, has spent his whole life just barely keeping the wolves away from the door, and he knows that the weather and the weeds will always win in the end. Genoways, in addition to his work as a journalist, is also a poet and a biographer of Walt Whitman, but this isn’t a particularly lyrical book.

Genoways gives the reader a kitchen-table view of the vagaries, complexities, and frustrations of modern farmin. The family farm lies at the heart of our national identity, and yet its future is in peril. Rick Hammond grew up on a farm, and for forty years he has raised cattle and crops on his wife’s fifth-generation homestead in Nebraska, in hopes of passing it on to their four children

In This Blessed Earth, Genoways masterfully illustrates the costs and demands of such a life, and beautifully renders the endurance and dignity of those who have chosen it. - Jane Brox, author of Clearing Land. In an impressive and compelling work of literary journalism, Ted Genoways dives deep into the heart of an American farm family, illuminating critical issues troubling our complex food production system. But he also describes in intimate detail the very human struggles of the work―between husband and wife, parent and child, father-in-law and son-in-law―in one family committed to growing our food and passing the work on to the next generation.

These are tales that tackle some of humanity’s oldest questions along with new quandaries only Ted Chiang could imagine. In The Merchant and the Alchemist’s Gate, a portal through time forces a fabric seller in ancient Baghdad to grapple with past mistakes and second chances. In Exhalation, an alien scientist makes a shocking discovery with ramifications that are literally universal. In Anxiety Is the Dizziness of Freedom, the ability to glimpse into alternate universes necessitates a radically new examination of the concepts of choice and free will.

This Blessed Earth by Ted Genoways EPUB
The family farm lies at the heart of our national identity, and yet its future is in peril. Rick Hammond grew up on a farm, and for 40 years he has raised cattle and crops on his wife's fifth-generation homestead in Nebraska, in hopes of passing it on to their four children. But as the handoff nears, their small family farm - and their entire way of life - are under siege.
Beyond the threat posed by rising corporate ownership of land and livestock, the Hammonds are confronted by encroaching pipelines, groundwater depletion, climate change, the fickle demands of the marketplace, and shifting trade policies.
Following the Hammonds from harvest to harvest, Ted Genoways explores the rapidly changing world of small, traditional farming operations. He creates a vivid and nuanced portrait of a radically new landscape and one family's fight to preserve their legacy and the life they love.
