Riassunto: "40 Acres and A Red Belly Ford: The Smith Family of Calloway County is a thoughtful tribute to 10 generations of the Smith family, but more importantly, it brings alive the history of Kentucky and its farming families. It's a special treat for readers who didn't grow up on a farm as they will learn a great deal about what it was like through these colorful tales of family life." -Bill Cunningham, Kentucky Supreme Court Justice and author of On Bended Knees: The Night Riders Story and Castle: The Story of a Kentucky Prison "The Smith family of Calloway County has provided us with a story of courage and survival in the face of modern day challenges brought on by the tobacco buyout program, immigration issues and foreign markets. It is refreshing to know that families can still thrive on the farm in Kentucky in the 21st century. In their new book, 40 Acres and A Red Belly Ford: The Smith Family of Calloway County, the Smiths tell engaging stories of farm and family life that also reveal their tender care of the land. In doing so they are weaving a legacy for their own descendants and all Kentuckians." William T. Turner,Christian County Historian

From the Back Cover: There is a kind of idealism that seems to be native to farming.  Farmers begin every year with a vision of perfection. And every year, in the course of the seasons and the work, this vision is relentlessly whittled down to a real result-by human frailty and fallibility, by the mortality of creatures, by pests and diseases, by the weather. The crop year is a long struggle, ended invariably not by the desired perfection but by the need to accept something less than perfection as the best that could be done.  

Wendell Berry
