Farm: A Year in the Life of an American Farmer

Richard Rhodes, Author Touchstone Books $9.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-671-72507-5
The author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Making of the Atomic Bomb spent almost a year on a central Missouri family farm. According to PW , this journal's ``meticulous, exhaustive, at times excessive descriptions'' illumine the planting and harvesting seasons, hog breeding, farm machinery and finances. ``Readers will not fail to appreciate the monumental achievement of the independent farmer, but they will remain curious about the experiences of the author, who masks himself behind a third-person narration.'' Illustrated. (Oct.)
