One hour a day spent in a garden ten yards long by seven wide will supply vegetables enough for a family of six. Bolton Hall wrote Three Acres and Liberty as a guide to city people who want to support a family with a small plot of land. He shows how a small tract of land near a town can be easily affordable and how a family can use the land in the most productive manner. Besides farming the author discusses limber for profit, transportation of crops, the difficulty of getting farm loans, and mosquitoes. This book is an excellent overview for anyone contemplating starting a small farm for food or profit.
