Elsie Lee Splear grew up on a farm in the early part of the 20th century. With the help of her daughter, Carolyn, Elsie tells what life was like for her and her sisters: the hard work they did making their own soap, churning butter, canning fruits, butchering meat, and much more. Everything had a season but as the years turned, a few, small changes came to their lives.
As it opens a window onto a personal slice of American history, this gentle, moving story portrays a way of life that seems both distant and familiar. Ken Stark, who was a friend of Elsie's, displays his clear love of the land in each picture. [via]
