A hybrid memoir / art book, with an introduction
by New York Times Bestselling author Barbara
In 130 ink-and-watercolor drawings, the story of
one year on a family farm in Kentucky unfolds
in captured moments of daily life: Donahue's
husband chopping wood, a cow sniffing her
head, her daughter tending to goats after a hard
day at school. Each visual is paired with a written
reflection on the day's doings, interwoven with
the longer-arc history of her family, the farm,
and their community.
In telling the story of a farm family's struggle
to survive and thrive, Landings grapples with
the legacy of our cultural divide between art
and land, and celebrates the beauty discovered
along the way.
