TheNew York Times bestselling author of thirty-nine books of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry?includingLegends of the Fall,Dalva, andReturning to Earth?Jim Harrison was one of our most beloved and acclaimed writers, adored by both readers and critics. In Farmer, he tells the story of Joseph, a forty-three-year-old farmer-schoolteacher who suddenly finds himself at a crossroads. Forced to choose between two lovers?one a younger woman, the other his beautiful childhood friend?he must also decide whether or not to stay on the farm or finally seek the wider, more broader horizons he has avoided all his life. Returning Harrison fans will be ecstatic to find this in print once again, and for new readers, this work serves as the perfect introduction to Harrison’s remarkable insight, storytelling, and evocation of the natural world.

?A quiet triumph . . . Joseph is a man suffocated by everything he loves most in the world: the land and its ghosts, love and friendship, integrity. Yes, it is the old story again. Taking it and making it new, as Harrison has done, is a miracle on the order of the loaves and fishes. But then so are all good novels.”?The Washington Post

?A beautiful novel.”?The Boston Globe

?Farmer is a sensitive, powerful love story about a man on the cutting edge of life . . . The characters are so real that often my eyes filled up with tears for their plight, their human helplessness.”?Richard Brautigan

?Superb.”?Saturday Review

?In Harrison’s hand the story is fresh with a gentle intuition.”?Houston Chronicle
