This book studies the phenomenon of land hunger. The author claims this feeling is general and may be regarded as a natural craving, although contemporary artificial modes of life can destroy it. Yet, even if lost for some reason, the desire for a private piece of land can reassert itself in later generations. Today, to tens of thousands of bread-winners in cities, country home is the dream of the future, the reward of their everyday battles. The author states that huge numbers of people tend to combine rural pleasures and advantages with their business.
