Excerpt from American Farmers' Magazine, Vol. 11: January, 1858 It is a species of millet, though differ ent from any the farmers of this country are, or have been, acquainted with. The yield on our rich prairies is very heavy. The premium acre at our last country fair weighed eight tons and two hundred pounds of well cured hay. This grew on fresh hazel brush land; $25 was the premium; other competitors came within a few hundred pounds of this weight. The average on our prairie lands is about five tons per acre. This grass is an an nual, cultivated pretty much as oats, though somewhat later. Any time in May it does well here. One-third of a bushel per acre is about the proper quan tity, covered very shallow, and harvested when the blades and head begin to turn yellow. Cutting time for this grass does not come on till the other harvest comes on. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Letters from an American Farmer

`to the European, the American is first and foremost a dollar-fiend. We tend to forget the emotional heritage of Hector St John de Crevecoeur' When D.H. Lawrence made this statement in his Studies in Classic American Literature, he was thinking of the Letters from an American Farmer. First published in England in 1782, the Letters came at a timely moment as attention was focused on America in the closing year of the Revolutionary War of Independence. Crevecoeur's famous question `What, then, is the American, this new man?' was a matter of great interest, as it became evident that America, that new nation, was taking shape before the eyes of the world. Some of American literature's most pressing and recurrent concerns are adumbrated in the substance and style of the Letters: in addition to the question of American identity, they celebrate the largeness and fertility of the land, personal determination, and freedom from institutional oppression. Darker and more symbolic elements complicate the initially sunny picture, however: the issue of slavery is raised in a particularly disturbing episode, and the final Letter, `Distresses of a Frontier Man,' dramatizes the disintegration of the rational enlightened society of agrarian America into a nightmare of confusion, incomprehension and premonitions of unspeakable evil. Written by an emigrant French aristocrat turned farmer, the Letters from an American Farmer has a good claim to be regarded as the first work of American literature, at once intensely interesting in its own right, and casting a long shadow of influence on both subsequent American writers and European travel accounts of the moral, spiritual and material topography of the new nation.
