KIRKUS REVIEW

Thesis study and analysis on the small, independent, family farmer -- his place in the world today and tomorrow, his problems,- in health, housing, land, debt- the competition of big business, of corporate, industrial, migratory and organized labor farming -- and the solution in cooperative local farming units. An expanse of rural life- in yardstick terms- of problems and prospects, of farm women, of housing, of health; of farming occupations and industries; of community possibilities; of experiences and beliefs; of the hopes of a secure and decent life. He describes and discusses the survival of the farmer from the point of view of national farm policy and a richer era for agricultural workers. A work book for agricultural schools, for the economic and social material, for the standards presented; a study book for the brief on the millions in question, rather than a book for the general public on a way of life.
