BIRTHRIGHT is the powerful story of a traditional American family driven ever westward by changing climates and economic conditions until they finally are faced with the loss of their farm and, more... More > importantly, the loss of the way of life they had followed for countless generations. All this comes crashing down on Harry Isaacson, the heir to the farm, on the morning of the auction. As he makes his final rounds of the old place he recalls his own life, that of his parents and his grandparents, and he gropes for an answer that will allow him to continue farming and pass the knowledge on to his own children. He must not break the chain of life on the land.
[Sequel to Birthright] COVENANT continues the story of Harry and Judith as they struggle to start over on a long-abandoned farm on the banks of the San Poil River on the Colville Indian reservation.... More > This beautiful Valley of the Cliffs is the ancestral home of Judith's people. The family must live in a tipi and work the soil with Harry's grandfather's last draft horse, an ancient mare. Almost no one believes they will succeed. From skeptical neighbors to authorities outraged at their primitive living conditions, they meet resistance everywhere they turn. Only Walt and Frances, an elderly farm-couple facing their last days will help them.
