These seven separate farmers are all struggling in the post-modern world, to make a living from the soil, to return to closeness with the land. The story unfolds with a description of the farmers one by one: Haum, then Brooke, then Kelvin, then MacKraut, then Topper, then Handy, then Appleseed... the reader finds out the complexity of the farmer's world, which is a most revered tradition since the start of history.
