Brian J. Smith lived as a child on a dairy farm near Ingersoll, Ontario with his family and grandmother in 1966-67. This lifestyle was very different from the suburbs that he was used to. In "My Year on the Farm" he recalls the daily adventures and experiences of living the rural life in that special year. The book is also a tribute to his industrious grandmother, Isabella Wilson, who managed the farm. "My Year on the Farm" explores the roots of his ancestry through his grandmother. Her example has been a great inspiration for Brian.
