The Corn Crib Book ...
Although we say that every "Corn Belt Farm Had One," many other American regions and Canada also had corn cribs, and we've PACKED (more than 330 pages and 1,200 illustrations) THIS BOOK with information about corn cribs, from the earliest log "cratches" to post-World War I manufactured,
perforated steel and snow-fence cribs, and tile and cement monumental cribs,
"Corn Pickers: And the Inventors Who Dreamed Them Up"
to post-World War II manufactured wire cribs, to 21st-century corn cribs, along with photos of every type. Also included are
the World's Largest Corn Crib,
the popcorn cribs used by Cracker Jack,
and pictures and stories
from farmers who have inherited
the old family "corn house"
or have built a brand new corn crib.
