family farm has long been held up as the strength of rural America
and the Nation. Much has been written about the virtuous, but sometimes
mythical, family enterprise. This book deals with the changes that
have taken place on the land that make the family farm of today
different from its 1900 predecessor. Technology in agriculture has
changed from horses to four-wheel-drive tractors. Today's farmer
relies on capital, management, and technology to be successful.
