voice one:

welcome to this is america in voa special english. i'm steve ember.

voice two:

and i'm faith lapidus. every family has a story. today we travel to a farm in the midwest, the center of american agriculture, to meet the fitzpatrick family.

(music)

voice one:

thick snow falls on the quiet michigan countryside as we make our way to visit leo fitzpatrick and his family.

the fitzpatricks are among the minority of americans who live a rural life. instead of a big city, they live near small towns. and, unlike many families today, they all still live near each other.

as we drive along a country road, we can see many buggies in a line near a farmhouse. these belong to leo's amish neighbors. the people are attending religious services in a home. the amish live as people did many years ago.

the horses that pull the buggies are nowhere to be seen -- probably warming up inside a barn.

voice two:

it seems hard to believe that any crop could survive this icy weather. the land is asleep. but not completely. winter wheat grows in a field that belongs to the fitzpatrick family.
