Interviews conducted by Gaylord Schanilec with farmers in Wisconsin, edited by his brother Clayton. Like most urban dwellers, Gaylord Schanilec saw farm life as a hazy, black and white image of chickens in the yard with an uncle and aunt waving from the porch. But when he set out with a camera and tape recorder to learn what farmers had to say about rural life, he heard a different story. 'Farmers' offers a revealing look into the lives and insights of four Midwestern American farmers--of their fight for survival on the fast changing landscape of rural America today. Schanilec sets the scene for each interview with a two-panel wood engraving in six colours using six separate end-grain maple blocks.
