Description of High Plains Horticulture a History First Edition (PDF)

High Plains Horticulture a History first edition by John F. Freeman is a great horticulture book available in (eBook) PDF download. The civilizing role of horticulture is part of the settlement story of the High Plains that has yet to be a subject of special consideration. The significance of this topic may be most readily explained by telling how it originated and developed in my own mind. In 1954, as an eighth-grader, I was driven across the plains of Kansas, Colorado, and Wyoming.

After spending the summer in a primitive cabin in a remote location in southeastern Wyoming, I took my first train ride alone, from Laramie across the plains of Nebraska on to Chicago and the East Coast. Even at that young age, I had found the High Plains awesome and exhilarating, not lonesome or bleak, and I hoped someday to put down roots there.

Some years later, as founding president of the Wyoming Community Foundation, I became convinced that building endowments that would last forever and planting trees that would survive the harsh climate were two sides of the same coin: creating permanent communities. Among the Community Foundation’s first grants were monies for the purchase of trees for several Wyoming towns. Furthermore, at the urging of Wyoming’s then first lady, Jane Sullivan, the Community Foundation supported a number of projects and activities to improve community appearances. The premise, of course, was that attractive communities not only help increase community pride but also help attract desirable new businesses.
