KIRKUS REVIEW

A journalist who was brought up on a farm, tells the farmers' story from various angles, and gives a sympathetic picture of the problems that seem inevitable, and of the possibility that their plight will be lessened. He goes into tenant farming, Negro farming, Indians; raising of corn and potatoes; sheep herders; lumbermen -- various odd jobs connected with the soil. He touches lightly on government agencies, showing how shifting policies and personnel have hurt the farmer. He shows a prosperous, scientific farm as indication of what can be done with education, training and better distribution.
