This year’s One Book, One Sioux County selection is The Witness of Combines by Kent Meyers.
“When Kent Meyers’s father died of a stroke, there was corn to plant, cattle to feed, and a farm to maintain. Here, in a fresh and vibrant voice, Meyers recounts the wake of his father’s death when he was sixteen and reflects on families, farms, and rural life in the Midwest.
Meyers tells the story of his life on the farm, from the joys of playing in the hayloft as a boy to the steady pattern of chores. He describes the power of winter prairie winds, the excitement of building a fort in the woods, and the self-respect that comes from canning 120 quarts of tomatoes grown on your own land.
