This early work on farming is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. It details the experiences of a man setting up an independent farm and the challenges he faces. This is a fascinating work and is thoroughly recommended for anyone interested in the skills of agriculture. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
