Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “This is a blunt, outspoken book by a man who has made his own way on the land, and who would share his knowledge with others, that they too might achieve a sturdy independence in the most worth-while of all occupations, the cultivation of the soil and all that goes with it. All through the book runs the true peasant philosophy — belief in the ultimate values, the worth of the individual, the rewards of hard work, tenacity of purpose, and simple living. Mr. Henderson also calls for a return to old beliefs allied to new learning, and without in any way becoming sentimental or romantic drives home, again and again, the means by which success may be achieved on the land; his message could indeed be equally applied to many walks of life.
