Barn Raising by Tina Lonski

"Barns are part of our history. Their stories are everyone's stories. I made up my mind to add my voice to those who want to preserve and remember barns and how they played parts in my life." – from Barn Raising

Join author Tina Lonski on memorable visits to barns around Blissfield, the small town in southeast Michigan where she grew up. You'll follow her to a round barn and a Mail Pouch Tobacco barn. Her stories tell of bulls staring at kids and a "mystery barn" with a pile of bones inside.

 

Tina grew up in an area where farming was the major industry and barns were everywhere, some even inside the village limits. Playing in a neighbor's barn then was like kids today shooting baskets in someone's driveway.

 

Barn Raising transcends generations as she gives a nostalgic and informative look about barns, one of our country's legacies.

 

Michigan had 209,000 farms in 1910, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. In 2007 the number of farms in Michigan was 52,800. And when farms become housing developments or are annexed because of urban sprawl, barns usually disappear. The stories in Barn Raising are a voice of someone who wants to preserve and remember the barns that played a part in her life.
