Werner’s parents cultivated a lifestyle that combined hard work, learning, and time for childhood fun and play in the surrounding fields, pastures, and woodlands.Connectedness was the theme in their happy life. Every member of the family participated in the functioning of the farm- siblings were best friends- and laughter and debate were welcome at the dinner table. The daily routines, the chores, the holiday festivities, and the births of siblings are recorded in scrapbook fashion.Country Ragamuffins presents a story of a time long gone and the celebration of a family heritage of strength, decency, and a thorough enjoyment of life.

This is combined with melancholy for the eventual changes that occur as time marches on and the small family farm becomes part of history.
