Appendix (Morehouse Succession - 12 Generations).

"Rural Roots is a new book written by Ralph Morehouse [...]. In this autobiography he outlines, in a direct and clear style, the influences on his life from family, educators, work associates, organizations and friends. Many associated with agriculture in general, and the Nova Scotia Department of Agriculture and Marketing in particular, will identify with the events and developments contained in these recollections. The early years, prior to studies at NSAC, contain insights into a rural life style characteristic of many Nova Scotians who lived on small farms in the 1930s. Several issues and approaches for improving agricultural services are noted in his treatment of the recent years, just prior to his retirement, when he served as Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Marketing. Typical of his modesty, Mr. Morehouse had a relatively small number of the books printed. - from N.S.A.C. Post, Vol. 10 No. 3, August, 1995.

A few indentations to front cover (not very visible), else a very good copy. 30.00

In the four year history of the program, no attempt hadbeen made to formally evaluate important phases of its operation.
