In addition to describing for the general reader the conditions of life of American farm people at midcentury, the author offers an interpretation of trends in such varied problems as the rural school and church, the farm organizations, cooperatives, and farmers in their relationship to the local and national governments.

The approach of Professor Lowry Nelson is to present the situation of rural people in a fashion understandable to their city neighbors—with whom they are becoming ever more closely associated in an interdependent status. In the chapter on the rural community, and again in the final chapter on “the new farmer,” the author points out the growing likenesses of rural and urban people.
