What I Live By . . .
The lessons explored in this book were very thought provoking. For me, it made me think of my roots…my ancestors, and the value system they lived by as farmers. To realize the beginnings of where my values, what I live by in trying to be a good person, come from. You have to be honest with yourself and your neighbors to be a good farmer. You can’t ignore the weather, you can’t procrastinate getting in the harvest, you can’t tell your neighbor you’ll feed his animals when he’s gone and not do it…they die. And even though i’m not a farmer and have lived the the non-profit world for many years the rules still apply. To learn more about the values past done for centuries of farming I would highly recommend this book.

This book is a delightful read about Randy’s unique perspective on growing up on a family farm and the life lessons it has taught him. His travels in Frazier’s Fabulous Flying Time Machine gives a very interesting take on the history of agriculture from the Garden of Eden forward ! The book is filled with quotes from famous and not so famous folks that apply to each chapter. And Randy’s sense of inspirational humor runs throughout. If you were raised on a farm, or especially if you weren’t, you will truly enjoy this book. And, you might even learn something about agriculture that you did not know.

Great Stocking Stuffer for One Who Loves Farmers and History
The true meaning of Stoic poses of farmers (the government and paperwork embedded in their crops). Enjoyed the storytelling style that made the travel back in time in a community that pulled together to survive and raise a family on private land. Especially appreciated images of those farmers and their stoic poses. Affordable gift for others to enjoy.

Brought Back Memories
Randy Frazier’s tribute to farmers mingles humor with poignancy. Reading this book brought back childhood memories of time spent on my grandparents’ dairy farm. If you’re a farmer, have a farmer in your family, or know any farmers, you’ll enjoy this book.
