Every Christmas, I pick out a book, then purchase a box of them for gifts for everyone on my list. Not ten minutes ago, I was wondering what this year’s book should be.

My favorite is Farmer Boy. This story shows how modern families need to leave the unrelevant government behind and become self sufficient!

Thank you Mr. Robert M. Anderson —- should it not be to Mr. Robert M. Thornton?

And most of all Thank You to Laura!

This was very uplifting and most heartwarming.

My favorite also is Farmer Boy. This story beautifully portrays the division-of-labor tapestry that works so well–making everyone happier and better off–when there is no government to muck things up! Farmer Boy is a true story, and it is true that government is unrelevant (as brian sheeran says)!

I read Laura’s books when I was thirty-five following my young daughter’s lead. It is now twenty years later and I am going to enjoy them again with more mature eyes.

I had finished reading Michigan’s history by George May, but the eye witness accounts of a girl without an agenda will be refreshing.

Thanks for the heads up.
