Publisher's Summary

This meticulously researched book tells the story of Midwestern agriculture during a period of epochal change in farm technology, farm management, and farm life. The hard work, tight communities, and values that had characterized the family farm were replaced by large corporate enterprises with massive acreages, high-tech methods, and global outlooks. While many decry this change as loss, Nordin and Scott find a net gain. This is their richly detailed account of one of the great transformations in American life.

The book is published by Indiana University Press.

"Anyone who wants a thorough understanding of the history of the region must read this book." (R. Douglas Hurt, author of Problems of Plenty: The American Farmer in the Twentieth Century)
