Garden-Ville Method: Lessons in Nature.

This is a book I enjoyed, perhaps because it reminded me of Countryside: informal,personal,and very educational.

Malcolm Beck is the founder of Garden-Ville Fertilizer Company, but his book is no self-promoting ad piece. It's a collection of his observations and experiences. If you read it you might want to try his products, but unless you live in Texas you probably won't be able to find them anyway... and in the book, he doesn't care.

The reason you'll want to try his products - or at least his methods - is that he tells how and why he moved from a successful eight-acre farm to a run-down 100-acre one, made that one successful, and what he learned along the way. He talks about soil building, planting and growing, and pest control, all in very practical and down-to-earth terms.

This one is highly recommended not only for its practicality, but its philosophy.
