Product description

Review

"This superb book is required reading for agricultural historians and those wanting to know how every president from 1920 to 1990 has dealt with farm problems. It contains a cornucopia of information and is truly enlightening."--American Historical Review

"A superlative history of farm policy on the northern Plains by one of the most meticulous students of the phenomenon in the past half century."--Great Plains Quarterly

"[Hargreaves's] arguments for dry farming sustainability are compelling, and add a balanced note to the often dire predictions of other Great Plains historians."--Journal of the West

"A regional agricultural history blended with national themes that is thoroughly and meticulously researched."--Choice

"This book is a solidly researched masterwork and a welcome addition to the literature of Great Plains agricultural history."--North Dakota History

"An important study that is essential for all collections about the Great Plains or American agricultural history."--Kansas History

"Essential to understanding agriculture in the northern Great Plains."--Nebraska History

"A superb volume which demonstrates once again the author's abilities as an agricultural historian."--Register of the Kentucky Historical Society

"A superb history. Hargreaves has a keen eye for the detail necessary to show the complex relationships between the environment, economics, and governmental policy for farming on the Northern Great Plains."--R. Douglas Hurt, author of Agricultural Technology in the Twentieth Century

"A provocative piece of work. Hargreaves is not afraid to question the established wisdom, but when she does so she is grounded firmly in the evidence. Indeed, while some may question her conclusions, none can question her knowledge or her mastery of the subject. An outstanding work of history and public policy analysis."--David B. Danbom, author of Our Purpose Is to Serve: The First Century of the North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station

"A fitting sequel to Hargreaves's first book on dry farming in the northern Great Plains. Again she has delved deeply into the relevant literature, exploring the effects of technological advance, policies, climatic factors, and economic variables as they have affected one of the nation's important and unique farming areas."--Howard W. Ottoson, coauthor of Land People in the Northern Plains Transition Area
