Homeschoolers, Hippies, & Heirloom Tomatoes – Book

by Philip Ward Newton


Have you ever seen a floating farm? It sounds impossible, but to the Masat family it’s a way of life. And while most kids attend traditional schools, the Masat children get to have school in a coffee shop some days! Meet the Masats: a family of tugboat-dwelling, organic veggie-growing, barge-farming, homeschooling vagabonds who spend their days traversing tributaries of the Mississippi River, escaping truant officers, and dodging flying Asian Carp. Join twelve-and-a-half-year-old Grace Masat on her family’s river tug, follow her on some wacky adventures, and learn with her as she prepares for her upcoming spelling bee.

Philip Ward Newton runs a charity in Peoria.
