Summary
  • "We're not rich, Papa." "Yes we are, boy. We have one another to fend to, and this land to tend." When young Rob Peck saves a neighbor's cow, the neighbor gives him a pig as a reward. Pinky is Rob's constant companion as he juggles backbreaking farm work with the schooling that is so important to his father. Pinky is a pet and a friend, but on a farm, every animal must have its use. And on a farm, even a boy must sometimes be a man. Will the support of a loving family and the plainspoken Shaker teachings of his father, Haven, be enough to see Rob through on the day no pigs would die? - Back cover
  • To a thirteen-year-old Vermont farm boy whose father slaughters pigs for a living, maturity comes early as he learns "doing what's got to be done," especially regarding his pet pig who cannot produce a litter
