The American Farm: How Farming Shaped the Landscape of Americaby John Fraser Hart, Gail Kinn (Adapted by)
Tracing the expansion of farming in America westward from the seedbed in southeastern Pennsylvania to the western edge of the Corn Belt in Minnesota, then swinging back along the Milky Way of dairy country from Wisconsin to New England, The American Farm provides an unparalleled portrait of the pastoral landscapes of America and how farming has made our country both bountiful and breathtakingly beautiful.
The American Farm takes us through such regions as the great grain country of the Northwest, where golden wheat blankets the rolling Palouse; and corn country, where rows of feathery green ears grow right up to the road and enormous grain storage buildings rise from the flat landscape like American Sphinxes.
