I am fascinated with the thoughts expressed in an article written by Lon Woodrum entitled "The Great Teacher Earth." He expresses so well man's dilemma in the following works: "Mankind has been struggling for millenniums with this good earth. This is the great teacher. This soil we walk on. this dirt . . This ground is a great lessonbook . . This is our true wealth . . Factories come and go. The land goes on forever . . I drop a tiny tomb called a seed into the earth and a resurrection happens! The tomb bursts and life reaches for the sun . . ."
Indeed, this is true. Generally speaking, people like to grow something in the soil, but too often the results are disappointing. It often happens that the fault is not in the "dirt." Thoughtful, daily attention will yield rich returns. After making many demonstrations to prove this to be true, it seems appropriate to share within the pages of this book some of the fascinating details I have learned about the soil. Every chapter is a condensed version relating to dirt and plant performance. It is really a mini-(college) course on agriculture.
It is a pleasure to recommend this book to all who desire a better acquaintance with man's great teacher - the earth. (J. R. Mittleider, Litt.D.)About the Author:
