This is the story of the few acres of land purchased in Walworth County, Wisconsin, in 1868 that became the 160-acre farm that would go on to support and provide the rich background for the lives of the generations that followed. Told from the various perspectives of descendants of Irish, English, and Scottish emigrants, as revealed in letters, diaries, photographs, and documents, this unique book offers a moving portrait of life on this Wisconsin farm over the past 150 years.
