Kurt Timmermeister, disillusioned with the cases of frozen chicken breasts ('chicken popsicles') and packaged foods he served at his Café Septiemes, bought ramshackled house on Vashon Island, a rural island community a short ferry ride away from downtown Seattle. He yearned to get back to what's real - in this case, real food. And while not entirely certain what that is or what it will mean, he knew he wanted to try. The rest of the book is that journey. Each chapter explores one aspect of his newfound life, describing the challenges of trying to make a farm profitable. A chapter on cows spotlights Kurt's first dairy heifer, Dinah, including her attempt to hump him and Kurt's painful hand-milking days. Another chapter focuses on Kurt's failed endeavor selling vegetables. Readers follow Kurt's evolution into a farmer while learning valuable tips (What is the best way to take honey from your beehive? How do you organize a pig slaughter? How do you ensure you make a profit?). Inspiring and practical, Growing a Farmer is a heartfelt story of one's relationship to food, the land, and the lifestyle of a farmer. We end with him hosting dinners once a week and selling cheese, uncertain he can ever make this work but enjoying every minute of it.

“A quiet triumph . . . Joseph is a man suffocated by everything he loves most in the world: the land and its ghosts, love and friendship, integrity. Yes, it is the old story again. Taking it and making it new, as Harrison has done, is a miracle on the order of the loaves and fishes. But then so are all good novels.”—The Washington Post The New York Times bestselling author of thirty-nine books of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry—including Legends of the Fall, Dalva, and Returning to Earth—Jim Harrison was one of our most beloved and acclaimed writers, adored by both readers and critics. In Farmer, he tells the story of Joseph, a forty-three-year-old farmer-schoolteacher who suddenly finds himself at a crossroads. Forced to choose between two lovers—one a tantalizing young student, the other his beautiful childhood friend—he must also decide whether or not to stay on the farm or finally seek the wider, more worldly horizons he has avoided all his life. Farmer is a wondrous blend of insight, storytelling, and the author’s uncanny ability to evoke the mysteries and beauties of the natural world.

Playing the Farmer reinvigorates our understanding of Vergil’s Georgics, a vibrant work written by Rome’s premier epic poet shortly before he began the Aeneid. Setting the Georgics in the social context of its day, Philip Thibodeau for the first time connects the poem’s idyllic, and idealized, portrait of rustic life and agriculture with changing attitudes toward the countryside in late Republican and early Imperial Rome. He argues that what has been seen as a straightforward poem about agriculture is in fact an enchanting work of fantasy that elevated, and sometimes whitewashed, the realities of country life. Drawing from a wide range of sources, Thibodeau shows how Vergil’s poem reshaped agrarian ideals in its own time, and how it influenced Roman poets, philosophers, agronomists, and orators. Playing the Farmer brings a fresh perspective to a work that was praised by Dryden as "the best poem by the best poet."
