An Iowa farm boy longs to quit school and join his dad working the land Dick comes home from school early and tells his mother he was sent home with a stomachache. She puts him to bed and tells him to get some sleep, but Dick can't shut his eyes for a second. All his life he's wanted to be a farmer—to quit school and join his father and brother driving tractors across their sprawling property—and today is his chance. His father is getting a 2nd tractor, and he'll need Dick to drive it. Dick is certain that there's nothing on the farm that he can't handle. But when he gets a taste of farmer's work, will he be so sure it's the life for him? This charming novel offers a detailed look at life on a farm and a snapshot of a time when a boy could quit school to work in the fields.
