By the time of World War II, the family had survived, and Ralph chose farming as his career. From then until he left farming in mid-1960s, he proved his ability on four farms with widely recognized crop and hog programs. Still working with farmers in Pike County, IL he gave fuller rein to his passions for fishing, hunting, and collecting farm memorabilia.

Now over 80, Ralph has written essays on his life and experiences in farming under adversity and in better times, highlighting his love for machinery. Hunting, with well-loved bird dogs, and fishing in many Midwestern, Northwest, and Canadian rivers and lakes get equal billing. And throughout are memorable people with whom he lived, worked, hunted, fished, and collected for three-quarters of a century.
