The conquest of the West includes some of the most dramatic episodes in the history of the United States. The successful experiment of bonanza farming in the Red River Valley of Minnesota in the latter part of the nineteenth century is an important facet of this ever-moving frontier. This book reviews and describes the giant bonanza farms of up to 100,000 acres with as many as 1,000 field employees, 40 cooks and housekeepers, and up to 800 horses need to run these giant farms.
