1908 Dystopian Science Fiction, Alternative History It cannot be said that the Everhard Manuscript is an important historical document. To the historian it bristles with errors—not errors of... More > fact, but errors of interpretation. Looking back across the seven centuries that have lapsed since Avis Everhard completed her manuscript, events, and the bearings of events, that were confused and veiled to her, are clear to us. She lacked perspective. She was too close to the events she writes about. Nay, she was merged in the events she has described. Nevertheless, as a personal document, the Everhard Manuscript is of inestimable value. But here again enter error of perspective, and vitiation due to the bias of love. Yet we smile, indeed, and forgive Avis Everhard for the heroic lines upon which she modelled her husband. We know to-day that he was not so colossal, and that he loomed among the events of his times less largely than the Manuscript would lead us to believe...< Less

The Story of the Soil and the Farm That Won't Wear Out By Cyril G. Hopkins
eBook (ePub): $8.99
(1 Ratings)
These two books explain each other. The first is a fictional account, based on the science behind agriculture. The second is a shortened explanation of that science. When you read his... More > fiction-based-on-fact, you can get moved by the drama, but also get educated meanwhile. Even through what seems to be archaic sterotypes, there is completely valid education to get while you are entertained. That is the point of matching up these two popular books into a single volume. Have a good time, and learn how to make a living growing good food. It's called sustainable agriculture, although Hopkins also touched on how to rebuild “worn-out” farms. Either way, these are good reads. Please enjoy. - - - - Truth is better than fiction; and this true story of the soil is written in co-operation with the Press of America and in competition with popular fiction.

Ten Acres Enough By Edmund Morris
eBook (ePub): $3.99
Too many in these several classes think they know enough. They measure a man's knowledge by the number of his acres. Hence, in their eyes the owner of a plot so humble as mine must know so little as... More > to be unable to teach them any thing new. Happily, it is not for these that I write, and hence it would be unreasonable to expect them to become readers. I write more particularly for those who have not been brought up as farmers—for that numerous body of patient toilers in city, town, and village, who, like myself, have struggled on from year to year, anxious to break away from the bondage of the desk, the counter, or the workshop, to realize in the country even a moderate income, so that it be a sure one. Many such are constantly looking round in this direction for something which, with less mental toil and anxiety, will provide a maintenance for a growing family, and afford a refuge for advancing age—some safe and quiet harbor.

Three Acres and Liberty By Bolton Hall
eBook (ePub): $3.99
By thought and courage, we can help ourselves to own a home, surrounded by acres of fruit and vegetables, flowers and poultry, and learn the best methods so as to insure success. In olden times any... More > one could "farm," but it is necessary to-day to teach people to obtain a livelihood directly from the earth. Scientific methods of agriculture have revealed possibilities in the soil that make farming the most fascinating occupation known to man. People in every city are longing for the freedom of country life, yet hesitate to enter into its liberty because no one points the way. It is not the growth of the cities that we want to check, but the needless want and misery in the cities, and this can be done by restoring the natural condition of living. It is easier to live in comfort on the outskirts of the city as producers, than in the slums as paupers. You raise more than vegetables in your garden: you raise your expectation of life.

Hand Book for Horsewomen By H. L. de Bussigny
eBook (ePub): $3.99
Ladies certainly do not care to passage in the streets, but they do want to know how to stop their horses cleverly when they take fright, to turn their corners neatly at the trot without danger of a... More > fall, and to avoid instantly any obstacle they may unexpectedly meet. It is also well to understand something of the simpler methods of regulating gaits. During the last twenty-five years many hand-books on equitation have been written for men, but few for women. This is the more remarkable as a woman's seat is such that she can not produce the same effects or use the same means as a man. Instruction for him is therefore largely useless for her. Men astride of a horse hold him between their legs and hands in a grip from which he can not escape, and can direct and force him with all the resolution and energy they possess.

The first domestication of the horse, one of the greatest achievements of man in the animal kingdom, was not the work of a day; but like all other great accomplishments, was brought about by a... More > gradual process of discoveries and experiments. He first subdued the more subordinate animals, on account of their being easily caught and tamed, and used for many years the mere drudges, the ox, the ass, and the camel, instead of the fleet and elegant horse. This noble animal was the last brought into subjection, owing, perhaps, to man's limited and inaccurate knowledge of his nature, and his consequent inability to control him. This fact alone is sufficient evidence of his superiority over all other animals. The Arabs frequently teach their horses secret signs or signals, which they make use of on urgent occasions to call forth their utmost exertions. Their secrets can now be yours.
