Tired and tattered are the barns of old, falling toward history downward. Lost are the ways of the past if we do not stop to take notice and record them. This is the second book of poetry written by Lori Davis of HiBar Ranch, located in East Tennessee's Smoky Mountains. HiBar is a working organic farm where the Davis clan tries to capture and preserve the ways of rural life and farm living through poetry and photography along with running a diversified farm full time. One of HiBar's main goals is to record this way of life so it is preserved for the next generation. God guides HiBar's path and blesses this farm.
We hope to share that simple beauty with all of you.
