Begun in 1941 as an outgrowth of Friends of the Land, the journal The Land was an attempt by editor Russell Lord to counteract -- through education, information, and inspiration -- the rampant abuse of soil, water, trees and rivers. But for all its seriousness of mission, The Land was a stimulating mix of fact and charm.

    An interesting historical perspective of land management policy and theory in the 40's and 50's. Some of their ideas, like the enthusiatic support of DDT use, didn't pan out. There are many articles arguing for sound principles of soil and water conservation that are still in use today. A great read for a back to the land enthusiast, especially if looking to restore some degraded land. An interesting historical perspective of land management policy and theory in the 40's and 50's.
