Numbugga Dumb Bugger
A remarkable testament to the rewards and ravages of living a farming life. "Go home, boy. Sink your toes in that rich soil and grow some roots." ----ROBERT PENN WARREN, to Timothy Murphy upon Murphy's graduation from college in 1972. "Murphy shares with Thomas Hardy his unflinching inspection of the natural landscape at its least promising." ----ANTHONY HECHT Set the Ploughshare Deep cannot be easily categorized, only experienced. An American story from deep in the great Midwest, it is as timely as news headlines on the farm crisis, and as timeless as the bucolic poems of Horace and the landscapes of Van Gogh.
