Summary
Nothing in the American scene has changed so much in the last half-century as country life. The old-time farm as most of us knew it -- and all that went with it -- is fast becoming a matter of the past. Almost every American has fond memories and a soft spot in his heart for the horse and buggy days down on the farm. This book is a portrait of those times, of that vanishing way of life. The pictures (photographs, advertisements, contemporary prints), selected from thousands collected from all possible sources, cover every element of rural life in all parts of the country before motor power transformed the scene. And Steward Holbrook, a farmboy himself and still farm-hearted, comments about each element and enjoys more than a chuckle or two and sheds an occasional tear as he gives the facts

Down on the farm -- A farm was many things -- And many moments -- Finding a place and getting settled -- There was work aplenty for a man -- Fruit in its season -- Services from outside -- And a thousand things for a woman to do -- And on this farm he had some chicks, E-I-E-I-O -- The farmer's best friend was his horse -- Machines made a difference -- Buggies & shays, ferries & sleighs -- Schooldays, schooldays -- And playtime -- Buying and selling -- Of feasts and fairs and get-togethers -- Sugaring off -- Thanksgiving
