Excerpt from "Life on the Farm & Ranch"
"The birds and their singing, the curious cows and new calves in an adjacent pasture, distant farm noises riding the breeze, and the sun's warmth all conspire to transform the moment. I experience an epiphany; I "get it."...I comprehend that [the Pasque flowers] are emblematic of spring and the end of a long, dark, cold winter. They are new growth, claiming victory for what will be another season of abundant growth. These flowers are a link between a hardy and trusting people to a land that is both harsh and gracious." -John T. Capone
Praise for Life on the Farm & Ranch
"Snuggle up with a cup of hot cocoa to enjoy these homespun tales of everyday rural life in South Dakota, told by ordinary folks who have lived them." -Linda Hasselstrom, Rancher and Author of No Place Like Home & others, Hermosa
