About this Item

118 pages; bound in stiff boards with title on the cover. Series of letters sent back home during a trade mission to the Far East in 1929-30 to see if there is a market for American fruit, fresh, dried or canned. Besides the author, W.J. Norton and Paul J. Windrem were on the commission which produced a book for the University of California as Bulletin 493 of the Agricultural Experiment Station in 1930. The letters give a human side of the travels and what was involved in creating the results of the commission. Crocheron has added some hindsight material in between the letters. Among the countries visited were Japan, China, Vietnam, Indonesia, India, and Egypt. Makes for a pleasant read. Bookseller Inventory # 10817
