The Earth Belongs to the Living by Francis Berkeley, (April 1977), E332.2 .A5 1977A
Scope and Contents
Jefferson took delight in farming and kept careful accounts of conditions and production, as evident in comments by La Rochefoucauld and in Jefferson’s Farm Book, a topically arranged agricultural book and broad record of his plantations’ activities. This book as well as his Garden Book, the "Mouldboard plow of least resistance," and the concept of the agriculture school are among Jefferson’s contributions to agricultural science. Includes mention of the Agricultural Revolution, George Washington’s farming, Thomas Mann Randolph, and the thirteenth century English agricultural commentator, Walter of Henley.
