Description - From Prairie Farmer to Entrepreneur by Dennis Sven Nordin

This meticulously researched book tells the story of Midwestern agriculture during a period of epochal change in farm technology, farm management, and farm life. The hard work, tight communities, and values that had characterized the family farm were re-placed by large corporate enterprises with massive acreages, high-tech methods, and global outlooks. While many decry this change as loss, Nordin and Scott find a net gain. This is their richly detailed account of one of the great transformations in American life. Dennis S. Nordin is author of Rich Harvest: A History of the Grange, 1867-1900. Roy V. Scott, Emeritus Professor of History at Mississippi State University, is author of The Agrarian Movement in Illinois, 1880-1896.
