Abstract

Erratics follows two farm families from 1986-2015, the Deans and Elsasses, who live in Buccan County, Iowa. Told through many voices and in twelve separate stories, the collection begins as the families and their community confront the 1980’s Farm Debt Crisis and continues to document the aftermath of the crisis, particularly the effects on human bodies, landscapes, and the primary source of income for the families, swine.
