This thoughtful analysis of the crisis in America's small farms is more than a history of the dissolution of the "family farm" competing with the factory farms of giant corporate conglomerates. It compares practices in soil conservation, animal husbandry, quality of product, and fair labor practices.

There is also an excellent illustration of the new type of family farm run by multiple families, which generates a wide variety of sustainable cash crops all year. This is a sobering examination of the negative effects of industrial agriculture contrasted with the new and encouraging examples of sustainable and cooperative farming.
