Some brief overview of book

Out of a rare American tradition, sweet as hay, grounded in the gentle austerities of the Book of Shaker, and in the Universal countrymans acceptance of birth, death, and the hard work of wresting a life from the land comes this haunting novel of a Vermont farm boyhood. In the daily round of his thirteenth year, as the seasons turn and the farm is tended, the boy whose time is the only-yesterday of Calvin Coolidge, whose people are the Plain People living without frills in the Shaker Way becomes a man. That is all, and it is everything.

The boy is mauled by Apron, the neighbors ailing cow whom he helps, alone, to give birth. The grateful farmer brings him a gift a newborn pig. His father at first demurs (We thank you, Brother Tanner, said Papa, but its not the Shaker Way to take frills for being neighborly.

All that Robert done was what any farmer would do for another) but is persuaded. Rob keeps the pig, names her, and gives her his devotion ... He wrestles with grammar in the schoolhouse.

He hears rumors of sin. He is taken at last to the Rutland Fair. He broadens his heart to make room even for Baptists.

And when his father, who can neither read nor cipher, whose hands are bloodied by his trade, whose wisdom and mastery of country things are bred in the bone, entrusts Rob with his final secret, the boy makes the sacrifice that completes his passage into manhood. All is told with quiet humor and simplicity. Here are lives lived by earthy reason in a novel that, like a hoedown country fiddlers tune, rings at the same time with both poignancy and cheer.

To a thirteen-year-old Vermont farm boy whose father slaughters pigs for a living, maturity comes early as he learns doing whats got to be done, especially regarding his pet pig who cannot produce a litter.
