Editorial Reviews

Review

"Among its many persuasive arguments, "Notes from the Ground "establishes that's America agricultural improvers were not empty vessels yearning for scientific advice from European chemists.

A bit ponderous. Not an easy read for me but give me a new perspective on history of early America.
