Ramblings is about a boy growing up in the 1960s in a farm community where the people were connected through real-life needs and the joys and struggles it created in relationships and life. This is a memoir of the reality, humor and lessons of agricultural life. Although philosophical at times, the narrative comes through people and stories, not through excessive discourse on the philosophy of an agricultural heritage.
Stories center around the 'inconsequential' people who enrich our lives in everyday ways. It is an honest book which exposes the flaws of these people while maintaining their heroic nature in their daily walk. The book explores the relationships of family, neighbors and community, which will be familiar to anyone regardless of age or background.
