  1. Buffalo Bird

    BUFFALO BIRD WOMANS GARDEN

    As told by Gilbert L. Wilson. A book that is hard to put down - one of the most interesting we have read. In 1917, anthropologist Gilbert Wilson recorded the recollections of a year of gardening activities of Buffalo Bird woman, a Hidatsa Indian born in 1839 in North Dakota and raised in the tradition of sustainable agriculture. It is a fascinating account of how the women (they did all the agricultural work) broke ground with a digging stick and planted extensive crops of corn, squash, beans and sunflowers. Buffalo Bird Woman tells of seed varieites, harvesting, drying, saving seed and food preparation. She also recalls songs, stories and ritualistic ceremonies essential to a successful harvest. Captivating reading. Softcover 129pp Learn More

  10. Farmers of Fourty Centuries

    FARMERS OF FORTY CENTURIES

    By F. H. King For thousands of years, Asian farmers have cultivated the same land without exhausting the soil's fertility and supported very dense populations. In the early 1900's, F. H. King, an official of the U.S. D. A. studied organic farming methods in China, Korea and Japan firsthand. He relates his observations in this amazing book, first published in 1911. He was impressed with Asian farmers methods of conserving and utilizing natural resources. They planted intensively, often growing two to four crops per year on the same plot, and constructed elaborate canal systems for irrigation. They let nothing go to waste; fuel ash, canal mud, organic refuse and manure, were all used to build soil fertility. King also studied their reforestation methods, land reclamation, and the cultivation of diverse crops, among them rice, mulberry for silkworms, and tea. He provides wonderful descriptions of the farmers lives and the places he visited. Over 240 black and white photographs from his trips illustrate the book. An altogether fascinating glimpse of another culture, with lessons for today. Softcover 441 pp Learn More
