Product Overview

Ten years after Henry David Thoreau learned how to be a poor farmer, Edmund Morris learned how to be a good one. Ten Acres Enough is the personal story of how Morris quit the publishing business and achieved happiness and prosperity by farming ten acres of fruits and berries. Rather than glorifying poverty and isolation, Ten Acres Enough shows farming as the path to financial security, while still providing all the benefits of country life-provided that the farmer understands that the key lies in producing crops of the highest possible quality, while living within striking distance of a major market. Five Acres Enough has left its mark on generations of back-to-the-land farmers. Its influence on both the title and the contents of M. G. Kains classic Five Acres and Independence (1935) is obvious. And it is benefiting readers today, whether as a piece of Americana or as a source of small-farm ideas and inspiration. Through nearly 150 years old, Ten Acres Enough remains a fascinating book. However, the passage of time is making the original edition increasingly inaccessible due to its archaic vocabulary and style. This Revived Edition has been copy-edited to restore its clarity. *Author: Morris, Edmund/ Plamondon, Robert *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 184 *Publication Date: 2008/09/01 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.00 x 6.00 x 0.42 inches
