having been published in 1975, i thought for sure this would be a hippie book but it completely surprised me. the author was an elderly woman living with her husband in rural oklahoma. the daughter of german farmer immigrants, she had grown up observing her parents work their land in accordance with the positions of the planets and then as an adult decided to study these age-old methods from a scientific perspective to find out why they seem to work. she's smart and witty and it's a great book.
