The first in a series of books celebrating the life and leadership of George Washington on the occasion of the bicentennial of his death, this book provides a fresh historical focus upon George Washington as a pioneer farmer actively engaged in a new approach to agriculture--one based on a more scientific attitude toward crops, farm animals, and the land. A tireless experimenter, Washington wrote often of his sense of responsibility for not only the farming activities and land at Mount Vernon but, just as important, his vision for the nation of farmers. Published by the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association.
