We Always Had Chickens

Paintings and Memories

ByLorraine Ortner-BlakeSusan Masephol

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
From an Iowa girlhood to a Wisconsin dairy farm, Marilyn, along with her husband, Justin, raised chickens, cows, hogs, crops, and fourteen children. Welcome to a window into a time of small farms and big families, told by word, photograph, and painting. More than 34 full-page paintings illustrate life on a 20th-century Midwest farm. Memory is notoriously unreliable, so to back up these primitive, sometimes whimsical paintings, are stories from many of the players in the adventures, plus nearly 100 photographs of a lifetime of farming.
