Google had the intro chapter. Interesting viewpoint before factory farming and trucking in fertilizer came to play. Perhaps this old book will be a bell ringer for the next era after the oil farming economy. The Google intro doesn't have much germane to say about tree farming; but, the online version has the complete, original book (not the reprint with a forward and new publication data :-) http://www.soilandhealth.org/01aglibrary/010175.tree%20crops.pdf REading through that book reveals much good knowledge including importance of foraging trees and ideas on cultivating cultivars and on other trees which might could be used.
This book was way ahead of its time,Growing food from trees without irrigation or fertilizer almost forever is a subject any Homesteader or back to the land dreamer should love learning about.
Wish i was a young man and could put some of these ideas to work, Persimmons grow fast so i may yet get to try those.
A great book filled with out of the box thinking,and much information many are unaware of.
