Farm science; a foundation textbook on agriculture

The aim of this book is to explain to the farm boy the facts about farming that have puzzled him. There are many mysteries that are not mysteries to. the average boy, for the simple reason that he has never recognized their existence. No attempt is made in these pages to introduce the student to new mysteries except such as are necessary in connection with a proper explanation of those he has actually met in his experience on the farm. The primary idea underlying the book is to enable the farm boy to understand the reasons for the things he has observed but does not understand.
