Meals in the field, combine rides with Grandad, picking fresh berries out of the garden and building forts in the bales.
In this next book project celebrating farm life, Miller examines what farm life is like -- through the eyes of children. Only not just interviewing "today's" children - this touching book delves into what it looked like to be a farm kid through the ages. Starting with her husband's 100-year-old grandmother, Miller asks what her days looked like when she came home from school, her memories of her mom, and what she did most on weekends.
Peppered with the hilarity and frank honesty only present-day "kids" can master, this book is filled with stories that will enlighten you, warm your heart, and make you laugh out loud.
Sure to satisfy even the urban reader, "Farm Kids: Stories from Our Lives" teaches through story and a special chapter of "What we want you to know." Miller captured the thoughts of hundreds of farmers on what they wish non-farmers knew about them.
"You have a brightness in your spirit that is rare. You are documenting people’s lives. That is really special. Thank you for putting your heart into this."

Daughter of a Farmwife
Miller has been captivating audiences and readers by telling the stories of Canadian farm life since she married a 4th-generation farmer from east-central Alberta in 2010 and has spoken at dozens of events throughout Canada and the US on what she thinks makes farm life so extraordinary. She lives on a 111-year-old farm near Lloydminster, Alberta, Canada, with her husband and two children. She writes her books from her home office, her favourite chair, or her fave local (or not so local) coffee shops.
