Farmer George Plants a Nation
By Peggy Thomas
Besides being a general and the first president of the United States, George Washington was also a farmer who enjoyed experimenting with seeds, tools and fertilizers. He also tinkered with plows and designed a sixteen-sided barn, and plotted the location of each new tree he planted. In this wonderfully illustrated book the reader will learn how George's created a self-sufficient farm at Mount Vernon, Virginia.
