Review

"Touching on a range of issues in American history, Carriker's book deserves attention from a range of quarters, including historians of nutrition, the city, and the New Deal."—H-Urban, H-Net Reviews

“Carriker provides a valuable account of the inner workings of the Urban Homesteads project and treats an interesting variety of personalities involved in the story.” —Richard W. Etulain, author of Does the Frontier Experience Make America Exceptional?
