Although his earliest days were spent in a town, author Harold William Marihart had the dream of one day becoming a farmer. From very young age, he enjoyed helping his grandparents and others with the chores on their farms. In The Ramblings of a Merry Heart, Marihart narrates these and many other stories from his eighty years.
In this memoir, he shares some of the highlights of his life—his birth in small-town Minnesota in 1931, being raised as an only child, attending school, helping with farm chores, earning money as a produce “salesman” at age seven, buying his first car, becoming a sailor, meeting his wife, navigating parenthood, and realizing his dream of owning a ranch.
Including photos, The Ramblings of a Merry Heart includes descriptions of true events and anecdotes from Marihart’s long life. It is eighty years of love and laughter bound into one book.
