Logan grew up on a high hilltop farm in Wisconsin, so remote .

Logan grew up on a high hilltop farm in Wisconsin, so remote that the family called it Seldom Seen. Fishing for bluegills, sledding downhill on an ice sheet, stuffing himself on pies and cakes and lemonade at the school picnic - that's about all the ""action"" there was in his boyhood years; yet it's wonderful how varied, how satisfying, above all how coherent, life was on the farm.

I personally knew Ben Logan, growing up about 6 miles from the farm he described in this book. I have hunted deer and turkeys and foraged for mushrooms on the land described within and talked to Ben many times when I asked his permission to hunt. This is a wonderful book that describes growing up in the midwest between the great wars, facing the hard times of the depression, and adapting to the times. Many good lessons to be learned by all who read it. A wide open window to another era.

I found this book at a small shop in Gays Mills this year when I was there on my annual apple buying trip. I am an avid reader but I will tell you straight out that this is the most amazing book I have ever read. The sad thing is that I had never heard of it or the author but the cover caught my fancy so I thought I would give it a try. I'm not sure how the author made me nostalgic and sad for things I personally have never experienced but oh my gosh, what a read. I was laughing one minute and crying the next. I was going to loan it to my mom and mom-in-law but decided they will be getting their own copies for Christmas. Don't miss this gem of a book. I guarantee you will finish it and wish it went on for many more pages.

The ancestors on one side of my family had a start in the USA very similar to the family in this book (a beginning separated by only about 100 miles). The book seemed very faithful to the reality described to me by some in my family and caused me to recall a few things I'd been told as a child.

We recently visited Seldom Seen Farm and were pleased to find the author has arranged to have the site dedicated to a nature conservancy which should protect and keep it as agricultural land in perpetuity. Mr. Logan no longer lives at the farm but occasionally visits. This Fall a monument to him is being dedicated at the site. See this website for details: [...]

For others without a personal connection the place and the times, I highly recommend the book as an easy to read look into life on nearly self sufficient farms in the USA heartland of the early 1900's. The author's ability to share the lifestyle and the feelings of the people make this a worthwhile read.

A wonderful, heartwarming book that transports you to rural Wisconsin in the early decades of the 20th century. I was captivated by Ben Logan's narrative and felt like I was there!

A friend asked if I had read this, and just said, "I think you'll like it." I thought, judging by the original cover, that it looked overly nostalgic and sentimental - I was very wrong. ( I know, there's a saying about that...) This truly is one of the most beautifully written personal histories I've ever read. It reminds me of the writings of Aldo Leopold, John Muir, and Annie Dillard; and it's as much about the land and seasons of the beautiful "driftless area" (untouched by glaciers) as it is about human nature, parenting, a child's growing awareness, and the workings of a family farm. I finished The Land Remembers and ordered three copies to give to friends. I highly, highly recommend.

This is a lovely story about a farm and the life values that the farm holds for its inhabitants. Readers who live/lived or spent time on farms growing up, as I did, will be able to relate to the love for the land. The author does an excellent job of expressing the attachment to a place and the memories engendered by living there. It is a keen contrast to the hectic pace of urban life and expresses what those who have never experienced farm life are missing. A lovely piece of work.

This is one of the most unbelievably beautiful pieces of literature I've ever read. It's in my list of favorite books and forever will remain. Met the author years back and visited the farm that this book is written about and it's like the author literally painted a perfect picture of this farm with his words. Very moving, very honest, very beautiful, earthy, and real.
Really good book for those of us that remember the old time farm life, even us that didn't live it
