"Originally published in 1954 in the U.S.A. by Bouregy and Curl"--T.p. verso. As World War II was ending, Alfred Leatherbarrow, a wounded Canadian veteran, and his nurse, Margaret, fell in love, married, bought their dream farm--and discovered that their crops would not grow. The farm's soil had been exhausted through years of destructive tillage practices. Faced with certain defeat, they used innovative farming techniques--including a prototype forage harvester to gather grass for silage--to restore the fertility of their farm. This early experiment in sustainable agriculture not only saved the farm in a rags-to-riches turnaround, but showed other farmers in their region how to pull out of the death spiral of decreasing fertility, yields, and income. Gold in the Grass is a love story, a back-to-the-land adventure, and an inspirational example of how conservation tillage can restore the fertility of a used-up farm. This is a great book, and has spent far too many of its fifty years out of print. Gold in the Grass is an example of the Norton Creek Press motto: "Most of the best books are out of print and forgotten, but we can fix that!"

Pretty good read, thou...
Pretty good read, though a bit more gung-ho for mechanized agriculture than I am. Still had plenty to say about responsible pasture management and also about growing mangels- something I am always interested in.
