TITANS OF THE SOIL by Edward Jerome Dies


Email this review


A worthwhile capsulizing of the contributions and achievements of 17 great names in agriculture, their lives, work, and accomplishments in national and world fields. This shows the coupling of original thinking and practical minds, the experiments and experiences each had in his life, the development of science, mechanization, the Department of Agriculture, pure food, inventions and discoveries, and how all played their part in the growing knowledge of farming. From George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, through Eli Whitney, Deere and McCormick, Harvey W. Wiley,- this roster affords a quick survey of the advances that have built our agricultural empire, and in a closing chapter highlights the work of nine others. An easy reference book for farm schools and libraries, useful in its concise presentation of its material.
