In this province known as "the bread basket of the world," agriculture is the culture which for over a century has provided the context for life in Saskatchewan. In this volume are over 200 biographies of men and women who have made significant contributions to the field of agriculture in Saskatchewan. Farmers and ranchers; researchers, teachers, and inventors; leaders in 4-H and the cooperative movement; home economists and agriculture extension workers; journalists, politicians, and activists--whatever the individual endeavour, all worked with the goal of improving farming, and ultimately, improving the lives of those who farmed. The common denominator here is the concern for the good of the community, whether local, national, or international, a concern that has come to characterize the province itself.
