Down on the Farm Appeals to All Ages-
Jane Henrickson read the book to her l0l-year-old mother Clara Winning, a resident of Parkway Estates.  Jane wrote about Down on the Farm: One American Family's Dream:  "...the heart-warming journey of a farm family living in Mid-America.  Their experiences as a family of six will bring smiles to the reader, knowledge of rural life in the mid 60's and appreciation for the unique ways they solved big and little problems that came their way."
     "The reader will be drawn into the family's life by the friendly style of writing.  Many articles allow for visual mind pictures."
     "One will appreciate the God-fearing, well educated, political astute, hard working family."
     "The journal format allows one to read for a short time or by chapters."
    "Down on the Farm:  One American Family's Dream fits in well with 'Baseball, apple pie, and the American flag.'"  Edit Text
