Rien's Farm Book 16 Dec. 2001
By Ineke van Noorel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The Farm Book is done wonderfully with great art. It will remind many people that have left the Netherlands and now live overseas, of the many small details of Dutch Farm life. The expressions on the faces of the typical Dutch farmers are rendered as only Rien could do it. Farms, animals, vegetation, it all is portrayed the way we used to see it around us, when living in that small country. Old farm tools can be seen as well. There is a variety of things all related to the old fashioned farm, and of course his text is humorous. This book is great!!!

The Best 11 Dec. 2005
By Kenton P. Moore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Speaking as a veterinarian, the combination of James Herriot's chronicles and the Farm Book gives one an accccurate and vivid portrayal of rural life.

This book takes you to another time and place. It is hard to put it down. The artist beautifully expresses his love for farm life and the inhabitants. Not to be missed if you love animals.
