KIRKUS REVIEW

This interesting biography will appeal be certain boys and girls but it most definitely deseves a place on library shelves. Born in Massachusstts in 1849, by the age of Burbank had produced 220 new varieties, of which there is a list at the end of the volume. There is singularly little available material on this man whose work makes him a great figure in modern agriculture and this may well have an adult as well as a juvenile appeal.
