Notre héritage ( Computer File )
1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 5 libraries worldwide
La Loi sur le rétablissement agricole des Prairies a eu pour effet de faire renaître l'espérance chez les cultivateurs des zones sèches de l'Ouest. Des années de sécheresse intense, jointes à un affaissement désastreux des prix, ont contraint un grand nombre de cultivateurs à quitter leur foyer pour chercher du travail ailleurs. Mais la plupart d'entre eux, se refusant à abandonner le sol défriché par leurs bras, bien qu'ils n'eussent pas les ressources nécessaires à un recommencement, sont vaillamment restés à leur poste. S'inspirant des découvertes faites par les spécialistes dans les différentes fermes et stations expérimentales, les fonctionnaires chargés d'appliquer la loi sur le rétablissement agricole des Prairies ont rendu à ces cultivateurs le moral et la confiance en l'avenir. La conservation de l'humidité, de nouvelles méthodes agricoles et l'affectation des terres arides à d'autres emplois ont contribué à remettre plusieurs fermes abandonnées sur un pied de production
