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.
The art of farming is based on the sciences dealing with the
growth of plants and animals. This book presents in a simple way these
fundamental scientific truths and suggests some practices drawn from them.
