My Sixty Years with Rural Youth

All 20 million present and former 4-H club members will be fascinated by this easy-to-read story of 4-H and will reach a new understanding of the meaning of the four H’s -- Head, Heart, Hands, and Health -- in their emblem. Adult volunteer 4-H leaders can gain a new vision and insight of 4-H that will prove valuable guideposts in their work, by visiting with ‘T. A.’ through his book. Agricultural Extension Service personnel can develop a clearer, deeper understanding of their responsibilities and how to more successfully serve the farm families of America by reading ‘Dad’ Erickson’s life story.

This is an excellent account of the origin, growth, and development of 4-H club work, showing the changed status of rural youth today. It should be ready by all Extension Service workers, 4-H leaders, and parents so that they can understand better how club work came to be what it is today.
