The haystack was once a familiar sight on the prairie landscape. It was a model of the practical and responsible use of natural resources as well as a symbol of pastoral bounty and of the enduring farming tradition. Through Arthur and Bonnie Geisert's vision the reader will come to see that a haystack was more than just a simple pile of hay. Arthur's exquisite colored etchings and Bonnie's informative text bring to life a fascinating heritage that gave support and sustenance to the variety of needs and functions of a working farm.

A timely appreciation of the lowly haystack that, standing ""high, long and wide on the prairie"" once provided months of low-cost food and shelter for livestock on the farm.
