About this product
- DescriptionTo a thirteen-year-old Vermont farm boy whose father slaughters pigs for a living, maturity comes early as he learns doing what's got to be done, especially regarding his pet pig who cant produce a litter.
- Author BiographyRobert Newton Peck comes from generations of Yankee farmers. Like the Vermont folk he writes about in his novel, he was raised as a boy in the Shaker Way, which endured even after the sect itself had died out. Its view of life is embodied in the character of his young protagonist's father, who believed that a faith is more blessed when put to use than when put to word: A man's worship counts for naught, unless his dog and cat are the better for it. From the Hardcover edition.
