Description

Indiana's pioneers came to southern Indiana to turn into reality the dream of an America based on family farming. The golden age prior to the Civil War led to post-War preservation of the independent family farmer. Salstrom examines this "independence" and finds the label to be less than adequate. Hoosier farming was an inter-dependent activity leading to a society of borrowing and loaning. When people talk about supporting family farming, as Salstrom notes, the issue is a societal one with a greater population involved than just the farmers themselves.
