"With a haunting cinematic quality, Heaven and Earth is a documentary record in prose and photographs of farming families on the North Fork of Long Island, New York. The book traces the Sisyphean efforts of the people who have inhabited these farms, weaving together three centuries of family history with portrayals of present-day farm life, land acquisition and sales, labor and machinery, and the unstoppable encroachment of suburbs. The weather and changes in the seasons shape the later chapters of the book, adding even greater uncertainty to an already difficult enterprise. The varied people who work the land speak from the pages of this book and the farms of Long Island become moving testimonies to the power of human perseverance.
