Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Contributions to the Hydrology of the United States: 1915 The valley was the stronghold of the Americans during the conquest in 1845, and many of the settlers became rich in the mines in the years following the discovery of gold in 1848. The commercial production of wheat in this area was begun by Gen. John Sutter in 1843, and until very recently the growing of wheat and barley by dryfarming methods has been the principal agricultural industry. The use of water for irrigation has developed slowly and has encountered a curious apathy, in contrast to the enthusiasm for reclamation by drainage. Because of a mild climate, a concentrated winter rainfall, and a shallow water table, many field crops and deep-rooted plants thrive without irrigation. Water is not a necessity; it only makes possible larger yields, the cultivation of crops with a higher return to the acre, and the cultivation of certain lands otherwise chiefly valuable for grazing. Such advantages have had little weight with owners of large holdings to whom the original cost of the land was small. However, the crowding in of home seekers from the East, the diminishing profits of grain farming, and the increase in land values have combined to bring about the subdivision and sale of many large parcels of land. To the purchasers of such tracts the advantages of irrigation appeal more strongly. The price of land is based on its anticipated value under irrigation and not on its value for dry farming. When subdivided, it is sold for two to three times its value for grain raising, and for many tracts the purchaser must provide the means of irrigation. The colonizing of subdivided lands has become a business and is in the main conducted by reputable firms. A large block of land is purchased and surveyed into small tracts with provision for roads and perhaps for a town site. Irrigation works may be provided or a demonstration well and pumping plant installed with the intention that the settlers should install private plants, using wells for obtaining water. Purchasers are attracted by agents and advertising. Charges of fraud have been made and doubtless in some cases are justified, but wide publicity and cooperation among real estate men are eliminating false and exaggerated statements. Intending settlers should exercise caution, view the property, compare it with similar offers, and be sure that they are getting good land well situated for a fair price. The value of farm land rests primarily on the quality of the soil and the value of the crops which it will produce, but the price of similar land varies with proximity to market, towns, and schools, with danger of floods and assessments for reclamation, with the kind of irrigation feasible, and with many other local factors. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books. Find more at This book is a reproduction of an important historical work.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Contributions to the Hydrology of the United States: 1917 San Simon Valley is in southeastern Arizona and the adjacent part of New Mexico. Most of the valley lies in Graham and Cochise counties, Ariz., but a small part of it is in Grant County, N. Mex. (See fig. 1.) The valley extends north-northwestward for 85 miles from the head of San Bernardino Valley, 20 miles north of the Mexican boundary, to the Gila Valley. Its southern part is narrow, averaging about 10 miles in width. It widens toward the north, reaching a maximum width of 35 miles where it is crossed by the Southern Pacific Railroad. North of the railroad it narrows to about 25 miles at a point where it opens into the Gila Valley. Development. The first white settlers came into San Simon Valley in the early seventies. As the climate was arid and dry-farming methods had not been developed, and as there seemed to be no available supply of water for irrigation, they depended for a livelihood upon stock raising. For this purpose the region was particularly well adapted. In the central parts of the valley grass for summer grazing is ordinarily abundant, and the mountains furnish pasturage for the fall and winter, when the grass in the valleys becomes scarce.
