A Collection containing: Five Acres and Independence: a practical guide to the selection and management of the small farm by Maurice G. Kains The Farm That Won't Wear Out by Cyril G.... More > Hopkins People who think they “would like to have a little farm” naturally fall into two groups; those who are sure to fail and those likely to succeed. This book is written to help both!

In either case it should be worth many times its price because, on the one hand it should prevent fore-doomed failure, and on the other, show you how to avoid delay, disappointment, perhaps disaster, but attain the satisfaction that characterizes personal and well directed efforts in farming.

This book, Profitable Poultry Production, is written to present the case fairly and squarely so the farmer may see the advantages that poultry offers as a means of making money. The book lays special... More > emphasis upon all the important practices and new wrinkles that have been found profitable by professional breeders and poultry-men.

The Story of the Soil and the Farm That Won't Wear Out By Cyril G. Hopkins

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.

Trees and Toadstools By M. C. Rayner

...[T]here are few indeed except trained naturalists who realize that any but a quite casual and superficial relation exists between these woodland toadstools and the trees under which they appear,... More > or have carried their observations a stage further and noted the regular coincidence of certain kinds with particular tree species. The association between the toadstool-producing fungi of woodlands and our common trees is only one of many unlikely ways in which plants belonging to widely different groups are interrelated with one another and with the mechanism of life as a whole. Because this is so, and because there is a widespread and somewhat surprising lack of curiosity about the jigsaw puzzle formed by the different kinds of life that surround us in nature; about the interplay and interdependence of their various vital activities and the pattern formed when these are fitted together... it has seemed worth while to write this little book.

It was late April when I came by. As I looked up into that tree top the sunlight was shining through, and at first I thought I must be dreaming. Instead of buds, I saw what seemed like lighted... More > candles, each with a silken frill, like the recurved petals of an iris, below the tip of flame! I had never seen a tree thus illuminated, and the sight was enchanting. The warm spring air had brought out the hickory buds, with those of other trees, and while I was looking for flowers on the ground, the buds above had swollen, cast off the winter covers, revealing the silky inner wrappings of the young shoots. The rich downward-curving “petals” were only the inner scales of the great buds, grown long and wide, their vivid orange setting off the compact yellow buds that still stood erect... I had never seen a hickory tree opening its iris-like buds before, but I have never missed it since. [From Chapter 1]< Less

Nature works and has been working for a billion and a half years—ever since there were living things on earth. This is important. We talk of controlling nature, but any wise farmer or stockman... More > knows that nature makes the rules for us to learn and follow, if we can. In short, the ecologist is in a position to furnish us, in many ways, models which we can follow in our own operations. Before the prairies were settled, plowed and fenced, wild herds moved back and forth across them, never staying in one place after the grass was cropped too short. These moving herds distributed minerals from their droppings and remains, for it is well-known that wild animals usually maintain a good mineral balance by visiting salt-licks and varying their pasture-grounds. Here in a nutshell is the model for proper use of grasslands. It takes a lot of common sense to get across the information we need. He has it and can put it out so we can all understand it.

More > the Constitution came into force in 1789, it has been amended twenty-seven times. In general, the first ten amendments, known collectively as the Bill of Rights, offer specific protections of individual liberty and justice and place restrictions on the powers of government.
