Little Sero’s parents used to tell him “You will learn the value of the land once you grow up.” Many times he had noticed how people, returning from work in the field, would keep the pieces of ground stuck to their clothes and shake it off on a naked rock in front of their houses. “The land is the dearest thing that we have.
