Back-to-the-land + urban plight [divided by symbol] part-time farming = New Deal subsistence homesteading -- Organizing the Division of Subsistence Homesteads -- The western projects of the Division of Subsistence Homesteads -- The Phoenix homesteads -- The El Monte and San Fernando homesteads -- The Longview homesteads
"[Author] examines for the first time the intricate histories of these subsistence homestead projects, which have long been buried in bureaucratic records and clouded by misunderstanding, showing that in many ways they were among the agency's most successful efforts. ... By describing what took place on these western homelands, [author] shows that the Division of Subsistence Homesteads' agenda was not as far-fetched as some have reported."--Jacket
