Creator/Contributor:
Henderson, B. (Bertha), creator
Description:
"This bulletin is designed to point out and describe briefly the land in the United States available for settlement, and to tell the prospective settler something about the conditions he may expect to meet, the types of farming prevailing in the different districts, and the agencies to which he may apply for information. It is not the intention to undertake to guide or to direct the choice of a particular farm, but to supply the settler with initial information concerning the region in which he would like to establish a farm home."--Page ii.
