Close attention is paid to choosing the correct foundation and materials for a particular structure.

With their classic barns and fences, American small farms, and the buildings that support these farms, serve a much-needed purpose as much today as then have in the past. Even with the advent of new technology frequently used on farms, these buildings have changed relatively little and are still used to house the animals that so many small farm owners work with and the feed, supplies, and equipment needed to maintain those animals. Every well-meaning farmer or property owner with livestock, small animals, or farming equipment has need of a barn or a series of outbuildings. Unfortunately, many farmers now rely on expensive contractors and construction companies to do a job many farmers traditionally undertook themselves. Knowing how to build these structures is not only a lost American art form, it is also a skill that can save you thousands of dollars. This book has been designed to ensure everyone who has ever thought of building their own barns, outbuildings, or animal pens knows exactly what is entailed-from inception of the design to the final construction stages. You will learn exactly what you need to start building outbuildings, barns, farming equipment, and farm supplies. For each of the structures showed within this book, you will learn the required dimensions and extra space you might not have previously considered, including space for your motorized Machinery, a workshop for maintaining your equipment, and loft space for hay bales, feed, and farming equipment. Regardless of what you need for your small farm or property, you will have a complete list of detailed building design plans. You will learn which building materials are best for creating your needed items as well as the best designs and methods of buildings. The companion CD-ROM contains design plans in PDF format for all the structures shown in the book plus bonus plans. Each design plan offers detailed instructions, supply lists, and diagrams. This book offers plans for building barns, storage structures, animal pens, storage sheds, and greenhouses. It also offers plans for building gates, fences, wagons, farm equipment, and other structures and equipment necessary for the success of your small farm. If you are looking to save thousands of dollars by building your own farm structures and equipment; this book will walk you through every step of the design, preparation, and construction process, ensuring success and capturing the lost art of small farm self-sufficiency.

When the Globe set sail on a misty morning in 1679, 21-year-old Tom is in the ship’s hold, preparing for a long, dangerous voyage to America.

Through it all, one family’s storied history comes to life in this meticulously researched book, which chronicles a personal history through times of peace and prosperity, poverty and war.

He misses the classmates with whom he was mainstreamed in the past. He is also worried about his big brother who is his hero and may be into drugs. A junior high teacher recognizes the boy's ability and, against the principal's orders, has the student attend his regular division class. The principal accuses the teacher of molesting the boy and moves to have him fired. The high school age brother of the student tries to help a friend who is in trouble with a drug pusher. The drug dealer abducts both boys, and the teacher and little brother try to rescue the older boys. As the story progresses, we see a Vietnam war vet who was dishonorably discharged and is building a drug selling network.

There are adults who are trying to rebuild lives and children who help each other through the rough times following divorce. You will like and admire some of these people. You will want to strangle others. Many of them you will recognize.
