Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 1940, Doreen Wallace--novelist, social campaigner, and farmer--wrote How to Grow Food as part of Batsford's iconic Home Front Handbook series. With its chatty style and beautiful Brian Cook cover, the book became a wartime classic. Now, a new generation of home gardeners can reap the fruits of Wallace's experience. Full of practical advice and whimsical musings, this charming facsimile edition dispenses wisdom on everything from growing fruits and vegetables to keeping hens and pigs.
