Good vocational material for this age group -- general in coverage, yet with a serious scientific approach. Don't be fooled by the format which is slanted toward a younger age group. Beginning with a discussion of soil, its formation, fertilization and preservation, the author touches upon many of the aspects of scientific farming- crop rotation, advantages of farm machinery, animal raising, corn growing, selling produce and the office of the County Agents and 4-H clubs. This is not detailed information, but simply an all-over glimpse of modern farming. Handsome illustrations by the author, well known for his paintings and engravings. For the vocational shelf.
