In 1986, an Amer. farm was going out of business every 6 minutes. Photographer George Ancona & writer Joan Anderson set out to document this important Amer. institution. They focused on 3 very different farm families: the Macmillans, in Mass., who specialize in dairy farming; the Adamses, in Georgia, who raise chickens & have created a farm coop; & the Rosmanns, in Iowa, who have an organic hog & grain operation. Is the family farm a dying institution? Or is it destined to remain alive, doggedly hanging on despite threats of financial ruin & such unpredictable natural disasters as the drought of 1988? A 1989 ALA Notable Book, 1989 ALA Best Book for Young Adults, & 1989 “School Library Journal” Best Book. Black & white photos.
