Index prepared by Michael Steer

This index was produced from a digital copy of the book, which can be downloaded from: Google, in partnership with a number of public libraries has sought to make more widely accessible, old, hard-to-get books on which copyright has expired. Agriculture has always been one of the major industries in Devon. Most of the farms still operate as family units. The diverse landscape, the hills of Dartmoor and Exmoor, the vast areas of the Culm grasslands to the north and west and to the south and east the highly productive red soils of the lowlands, provide a vast diversity of agricultural uses. Vancouver's observations and statistics on a wide array of matters georgical and particularly on the rural economy, all show that farming in Devon has long been a challenging, although often rewarding occupation.
