Carl Horton Hays grew up a sharecropper on 22 acres in rural Iowa, which he now calls The Promised Land. A philosopher, inventor and farmer, he shares the deeply intricate workings of his projects, including a full span bridge he built with his hands, how they are connected to the land which was given to him as a promise, and what he hopes to pass on to his children as a “gift of place.”
