What a gem of a book Sept. 21 2011
By G. Damon Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It will not be possible to state the reading value of this book, but I'll try. It came in the mail via Amazon, and I've been reading it over and over. The editing is superb. The brief footnotes clarify all the questions that 150 years can raise; the parenthetical translations explain how money in the 1850's translate to modern dollars and expense, or income. In short, this book is a brilliant rendering of a work I first encountered in an excerpt in Mother Earth News, and its arrival in the mail was the beginning of an epiphany.

But what would I know? I've only been writing about gardens for publication for 30 years, the winner of two national awards for talking about gardens. Edmund Morris wrote a book that is still valuable in 2011. The editor, Robert Plamondon, has updated it brilliantly. Wish I could have found this edition in 1972.

The book design will delight you. Often, a blank page precedes each chapter, giving the reader a place to write notes. Seems like a small thing, until you start writing about what you have read.

This is a book with real quality, and could be given as a gift to any gardener you know. Or to anyone who lives in the country. Norton Creek Press has given the world a gift, in the "Revived Edition." It's a fine job. No, it's better than that. This book could change your life, and maybe save it. Edmund Morris fled the city, just in time.

history updated Jan. 29 2010
By Deb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Robert Plamondon updated this book to todays economics which made it much more useful. Many of the concerns of 1864 are just as important today when thinking about how to make the small acreage pay off or be enough to support the family. Since reading this book, I have more organized questions about how to use the land in my care.

Still relevant Jan. 19 2009
By Lynn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Excellent book. The strategies for starting a small, sustainable farm in this book are still relevant almost 150 years later.

Good read! Dec 25 2009
By Michigan Craftsman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While not as poetic as Waldon, it is certainly more positive and practical. Really nice read and with Robert Plamondon's notes, nicely brought to the current day. My wife and I hope to retire soon and put some of this to use.
