From the acclaimed author of Population: 485 and Truck: A Love Story comes a humorous, heartfelt memoir of a new life in the country.Living in a ramshackle Wisconsin farmhouse-faced with thirty-seven acres of fallen fences and overgrown fields, and informed by his pregnant wife that she intends to deliver their baby at home-Michael Perry plumbs his unorthodox childhood for clues to how to proceed as a farmer, a husband, and a father. Whether he's remembering his younger days-when his city-bred parents took in sixty or so foster children while running a sheep and dairy farm-or describing what it's like to be bitten in the butt while wrestling a pig, Perry flourishes in his trademark humor. But he also writes from the quieter corners of his heart, chronicling experiences as joyful as the birth of his child and as devastating as the death of a dear friend.

Michael Perry is a writer and a humorist. He has written three best selling memoirs and his work has appeared in Esquire, The New York Times Magazine, Backpacker, Outside, and Salon.com. Perry was born in rural Wisconsin. He has spent many years as a volunteer firefighter. The majority of his writing discusses his farming background and life lessons. He was educated at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. Perry's books include Visiting Tom: A Man, a Highway, and the Road to Roughneck Grace (2012); Coop: A Year of Poultry, Pigs, and Parenting (2009); Truck: A Love Story (2006); Off Main Street: Brainstormers, Prophets, and Gatemouth's Gator (2005); Population: 485: Meeting Your Neighbors One Siren at a Time (2002); Big Rigs, Elvis & the Grand Dragon Wayne (1999); and Why They Killed Big Boy (1996).
