This book has some very straight forward feelings on how farmers are making out in economy 1933 . There is some comments made not politically correct . It Is Called "We Damphool Farmers" By W.F.Schilling"

    He probably didn't show up in farming country after writing that book!

    Take my word for this, farmers seldom say what is politically correct. I enjoyed the little verse in Pic #3. I love the book. Thanks for sharing it.

    Walksoft I think his intent was to tell the story of a farmers poor life but he uses some strong language . There are lots of graphics and some are raciest and I did not show them . We both were farmers and I would not have bought the book . It is a satire I guess you might say .

    Do you still have this book? If so, I was wondering if you would consider selling it? W.F. Shilling was my Great Grandfather and I've been trying to locate the books he wrote.
  11. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    Hi melinda I still have it just have to remember where I put it . We can't sell on this site but I would give it to you , but it may take me sometime to find book . We moved alot of my stuff into attic so I have to hope it is not there . If you email me at I will just send it to you when I locate it . It could not have a better home than with the author's great grand daughter :-)
