First published in 1883, this charming book includes many of James Whitcomb Riley's
signature poems, including "Thoughts fer the Discuraged Farmer" and "When the Frost Is on the
Punkin." Also graced by noted Brown County artist Will Vawter's folksy illustrations of farm scenes
from our past, this Library of Indiana Classics edition faithfully reproduces the 1905 edition. A
must-have for Riley enthusiasts everywhere, it offers a warm look at how farm life was depicted
over a century ago.
