Ultimately a story of success–both in bringing life back to the land and to providing work and the opportunity to tend to one’s own farm to same African-American families amid devastating economic conditions–Planting Hope on Worn-Out Land is a welcome contribution to both American history and agricultural history shelves.
Pasquill bases the bulk of his work wholly on the primary sources at hand. The author has used his unique access to these records to uncover a project about which the public would otherwise have little knowledge. Pasquill is successful in his goal. This is the best scholarly treatment of the Tuskegee Land Utilization Project available. It is now the responsibility of future scholars to engage this useful case study in the discussion of federal land policy.
