THE GREAT HERITAGE

**Superior organization and presentation of the history of our country's natural resources, from the early discoveries and use of the wealth, to the recent developments in all fields. It is the story of fur, cotton, lumber, foodstuffs, cattle, tobacco, gold, coal, steel, iron, oil, water, fish -- their importance in the growth of a nation, their overexploitation, the mistakes in handling, the results of research and the progress of new ideas and methods. There is enough of national historical background and of notable figures to round out the picture and the appendices of reference books for further reading, records of American music, and films on American life, agriculture and industry, make this a must book for all American history students.
