Jewish Farmer in America the Unknown Chronicle
1993 0-7734-9229-1
Ornstein's work explains what it was like for a Jewish family to own and work a family farm surrounded by gentiles and isolated from the Jewish community. It is essentially the author's memoir told in a conversational style, and it captures in amazing detail the sights and sounds of rural surroundings, the intricacies of farming in Geauga County Ohio, the voices of neighbors and visitors, and perceptive insights into the meaning of the family's experience and the rural way of life.
