“It concerns real life, relatively ordinary activities, drawn with the precision of a Norman Rockwell painting.” ~The Omaha Reader

Set in the Dust Bowl of the American West, this true account of a child coming of age on a 1920's Nebraska farm, recaptures an era. Young Lucille Marker experiences survival during the Depression, one of the worst dust storms in history, and finally the disintegration of the close-knit community in which she grows up. Readers who like the books of Laura Ingalls Wilder or Willa Cather will enjoy Farm Girl. It takes place on the Marker farm, located near Red Cloud, the locale of Willa Cather’s Nebraska novels. Farm Girl takes one back to a time and place that no longer exists in American culture. Richly photographed throughout with over sixty authentic photos documenting the people and places of the story, this historical, easy-to-read book is suitable for use in the classroom.

"Farm Girl presents a vision of life on a Nebraska homestead during the 1920s and 1930s, told from a child's perspective, and illustrated with photographs of the time." --Quincy Herald Whig

"Farm Girl will capture the interest of readers in the photos the book contains and witty recollections Lucille has of her grandparents in Catherton Township." --The Red Cloud Chief

"Have you thought about writing your family history, but found yourself stuck from the start? Writing a family narrative can be a daunting task, but Karen Jones Gowen found a way to bring her mother's story to life." --Homespun Magazine

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great historical perspective 3. September 2007
Von Ms. Julie M. Bucknam - Veröffentlicht auf
This book by Karen Jones Gowen offers a wonderful view of what it was like to grow up in Nebraska in the 20's and 30's. It is told from the viewpoint of the author's mother who grew up during that time in Nebraska. It is well written and easy to read. It would be a great resouce for teachers who are trying to teach what life was like during that time period. The author also includes excerpts from her grandmother who was an early homesteader in Nebraska. The narrative style the author has used enhances the book and lets the reader feel as if they are living right along side Lucille Marker. I would highly recommend this book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Pleasurable Read With a History Lesson Bonus! 17. Dezember 2011
Von Glynis Smy - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
As a Brit, I do not know much about American history. Reading Farm Girl I have learned so much more about past lifestyles and disasters. About how a race pulled together and how families were divided by the search for work. The author has written a tender memoir via her mother.

I loved learning about the foods, the clothing and how one woman painted her way out of The Depression. How she enabled her family to have a better life despite the odds being against them.

Simply written in a gentle style, this book is ideal for pleasurable memoir moments or classroom reading. The photographs were a wonderful addition.

5.0 von 5 Sternen God Bless America! 23. September 2011
Von goddessinc - Veröffentlicht auf
I loved this book! A captivating Memoir set in the Dust Bowl era, it doesn't just tell a story of an american girl's life (which it does very well); but the real joy here is the way the author and her subject really take you into that time and place. You can hear the buzz of insects, the quiet of a crisp rural night, and the rustle of plains winds through the grass. You can smell the heat, and the dust, and the homemade sauerkraut. You can almost taste the fruit and the bread, and the cool well-water, as we follow this spunky young girl through her every-day, yet sometimes extraordinary life.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Very Enjoyable 4. April 2012
Von Lucy Ditty - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I liked this book a lot. It is a charming memoir without self-pity, sentimentality, or a lecturing tone of "we had it so much worse than you did."

From the introduction, it sounds like Karen "primed the pump" to get Lucille's memories going and then just let them flow, and that's how the book reads. It meanders a bit and there's sometimes not a lot of "point" to a particular story. I never got the feeling that there was a specific goal or path in mind, just the journey - which, really, is what life is all about.

Lucille matter-of-factly acknowledges that she was a loved and spoiled child, a fact which I think is borne out by the photographs. It seems unusual to have so many relatively casual photos of a small child from this era (although I could just be completely off-base here) and I was touched by them. I particularly liked the one of her drinking from the "hydrant."

The paintings were lovely, and I thought they were an unusual and interesting addition to the book, although certainly not all that impressive on my Kindle e-ink reader.

The worst thing I can say about it is that the writing is a bit unpolished, but I would balance that by saying that I think to polish this book would be to run the risk of ruining it.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great Read! 30. Januar 2012
Von Katie - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is a great read for anyone intested in early farm life for American settlers. More of just an account of day to day life and living for early farmers and growing up in Nebraska, and offered a unique peek into that way of life long gone.
