Children of the land : adversity and success in rural America

Elder, Glen H., Jr. (Author). Conger, Rand. (Added Author). King, Valarie. (Added Author).

Summary:

"In Children of the Land, the authors ask whether traditional observations about farm families - strong intergenrational ties, productive roles for youth in work and social leadership, dedicated parents, and a network of positive engagement in church, school, and community life - apply to 300 Iowa children who have grown up with some tie to the land. The answer, as the authors show, is a resounding yes. The study includes families involved in full-time or part-time farming, displaced farm families, families in which the parents grew up on a farm, and non-farm families - the comparison group."--Jacket.
