Great Possessions is David Kline's classic memoir celebrating his life as an Amish farmer in Southern Ohio.

"Infectiously avid, the author shares his knowledge of mushrooming in spring, chopping firewood in fall, maple-sugaring in late winter, bird-watching all year round, and going on walks across the countryside with his children, ``just . . . seeing things.'' His reverence for nature and his deep religious faith are palpable, and he argues convincingly for the ``small-scale diversified farming'' of the Amish, which ultimately gives back to the earth more than it takes." - Publishers Weekly
