Product Information

Originally published in 1919, this book is designed primarily for use as a text or reference book in connection with farm shop courses in agricultural schools or in the agricultural departments of rural high schools. The problems that this work presents are many and their seriousness is accentuated by the fact that commonly the farm shop instruction is offered by the teacher of agriculture. This arrangement has an advantage in the fact, that it makes possible a more intimate relationship between the shop work and the various phases of the agricultural work, but it presents serious teaching difficulties and makes necessary such assistance for the teacher as is to be found in this book.

The author's extensive farm experience, technical training, several years of experience as a teacher of shop work to farm boys and his efforts in instructing prospective teachers of vocational agriculture in farm shop work have made an excellent background for such an undertaking as is represented by this volume. As a result he has prepared a book that contains practical problems, carefully analyzed and skillfully presented. Wise use of this volume is certain to result in a marked advance in the character of work done in farm shop courses in agricultural departments and schools.
