Excerpt

North America is passing through a crisis in its economic history. The population of the United States increased twenty-seven fold in the one hundred and thirty years between the first census in 1790 and that of 1920. This increase, without parallel in the history of the world, was accompanied by the use, waste, and destruction of resources at a speed also unparalleled.

That is past. What of the future? This is the concern of every intelligent citizen -- a growing concern. It will be even more acutely an affair which the youth now being educated must face. Their education should give them a thorough knowledge of the continent on which they are to live. Hence this book.
