About the Author

Ben Logan (1920-2014) traveled as a merchant seaman and worked many years in New York as a novelist, lecturer, and writer/producer of films and television. He returned in the 1980s to Seldom Seen Farm in Wisconsin. The farm is now privately owned but has been preserved through a land trust with the Mississippi Valley Conservancy.

Reviews

"What drew me so irresistibly through The Land Remembers? . . . It's not nostalgia for my own past that [Logan] made me feel; it's nostalgia for a world he makes me wish I'd known." New York Times Book Review, "
"A book to be cherished and remembered." Publishers Weekly, "
"A book to be cherished and remembered." Publishers Weekly"
"Ben Logan is strikingly successful in recalling his own boyhood world, a lonely ridge farm in southwestern Wisconsin. . . . He reviews his growing-up years in the 1920s and '30s less with nostalgia than with a naturalist's eye for detail, wary of the distortions of memory and sentiment." --Christian Science Monitor
