Growing up on a farm in Iowa in the early 1900s as the youngest of five brothers can be a grand adventure... and a lot of hard work! William learns valuable life lessons as he simply goes about his daily life.This historical fiction book is based on events in the life of the author's own father.
NANCY LYNCH is one of four grown children of Waldo and Hazel Bruns (William and Hannah). She was born in Storm Lake, Iowa in 1955 and was raised on a farm in Alta, Iowa until her family moved to Florida when she was in eighth grade. Since 1968, Nancy has lived in Florida with her husband of forty years, Pat. Together they raised three daughters who are all married and now have seven grandchildren. Nancy and her husband enjoyed reading books aloud to the girls when they were young. Being intrigued with stories her own father told her, she decided to compile some of the events into a children’s historical fiction book that could be read aloud to her grandchildren. Just a Farm Boy is the first book Nancy Lynch has written.
