KIRKUS REVIEW

A vigorous biography of the fabulous John Chapman throws the light of truth on the American folk hero. Leaving his Massachussetts home, Chapman's future territories were the Alleghenies, Ohio and Indiana. His planting and conservation methods were of value to the right places at the right time- so much so that his name became a household word. Straightforward.
