Echoes from the Farm
by Jonathan T. Jefferson
About the Book
Echoes from the Farm is my way of sharing the memories that have guided my interests throughout adulthood. I share a special part of my family's love, and the love that was shown to us in a unique place on the American tapestry. I would not trade my farm experiences as a child for anything in the world. Enjoy!
Wow, Jonathan - is what I have to say for your book. Wow! I read the 15 page preview of the book and it looks amazing. You write beautifully and have obviously had many beautiful, lasting memories of an enjoyable childhood.

Born in 1969 as the seventh of eight children to two Harlem raised parents, this author benefited from both the inner-city life of Queens, New York, and childhood summers spent on a farm in rural upstate New York. Academic, professional, and physical accomplishments have punctuated this author's life. After earning his doctorate from Seton Hall University in 2006 in the area of education leadership, management, and policy, creative pursuits such as self publishing memoirs, poetry, and photography have taken the edge off of an otherwise mundane existence as a public school administrator. An adventurer by nature, he became the first African American to hike to the top of every mountain in the northeast United States over 4,000' (115 of them) by September of 2000. At that time, less than 400 people had accomplished this feat; whereas thousands have scaled Mount Everest.
