Description

Minnesota's barns are remarkable testaments to a Midwestern way of life, one centred on the land, work, family, ingenuity and perseverance. This book showcases the vast array of these exceptional landmarks, built by hand in wood and stone, brick and metal. Where Ohman's photographs capture the beauty of the barn from the outside in, Will Waver's evocative story illuminates the life of the barn from inside out. Readers witness the making and breaking of one barn as it plays into the life and sustenance of several generations of one family who settles the land in 1922 and who farmed into the age of agribusiness. Eighty-five stunning colour photographs accompanied by Weaver's moving story uplift these beautiful buildings and a way of life on the land that is as strong and proud, as fragile and humble, as the barns among us.
