Blending stories from the distant past and present Turner has painted a colorful picture of the people and farmlands of Adams County, Washington. Many years after his own time as a young harvest hand Turner returned to the land settled by pioneers and struggling to survive in modern day America. Unique in geography and rich with characters he tells the tale of rural life through this wheat and potato agricultural community. Weaving in his own personal experiences, he takes the reader on a journey from the nineteenth to the 21st Century and introduces us to a host of hardworking folks, some more eccentric than others.
