Raising Less Corn and More Hell: Midwestern Farmers Speak Out

Front Cover
University of Illinois Press, 1988 - Business & Economics - 301 pages
In "Raising Less Corn and More Hell," midwestern farmers offer heartrending stories in their own words about today's crisis in rural America. Dozens of family farmers tell Jim Schwab how they perceive the crisis and what they and the rest of us, as a nation, should do about it.

These are not objective, detached accounts; rather, they are vivid testimonials by angry men and women who cannot survive existing farm policies designed to drive them off their land. Their stories capture the pain and anguish that so many rural families feel as they are forced to give up both their livelihoods and their way of life.
