by W. S. Harwood




The statements in this book, both those which have a scientific, and those which have a practical bearing, stand unreservedly vouched for by Mr. Luther Burbank.

The interest in the man and his work has steadily heightened since the book was first issued in 1905, and a clearer and more intelligent appreciation of his great powers has been manifest. The interest has been shown not only in the practical features but in the scientific as well. The more closely his work has been scanned by those who have been both competent and fair, the more commanding it has appeared in its scientific and economic value.

A closer study of the work during the period since the book was first issued demonstrates that this is one of the greatest constructive enterprises ever established among men.

He who deals with the life-work of Luther Burbank deals with that which is unique among the enterprises of the age, and of a noble and unparalleled scope
