Even the fact that my great-grandparents were among the Jewish farmers chronicled in this book couldn't get me invested in it. As the daughter of a historian I expected to be interested, but this was one of the driest reads I've made it through in a long time.

True history of my grandad and his peers who migrated from Ukraine at trurn of 20th century and became modern, back-to-the-land pioneer farmers in Utah. A slice of American experience and insight into a little known part of the Jewish diaspora.

My advisor wrote this book. It is beautifully written, and it is a fascinating analysis of Eastern, urban, immigrant Jews who took a gamble to come to Utah and try their luck as farmers.
