FOREWORD TO VOLUME XII
Having covered the entire range of plants with
which Mr. Burbank has worked, and having ob-
tained a thorough understanding of all the
methods he has employed, we are given, in this
volume, a summing up of what has gone before,
with an eye not only to its application to plant life,
but to the immediate improvement of the human
plant.
In this volume also will be found the intimate
life story of Luther Burbank; from his boyhood
days in Massachusetts, through his first hardships
in Santa Rosa, to the final glory of success, to-
gether with a report of the work of the Luther
Burbank Society and an outline of its plans for
the widespread dissemination of Mr. Burbank's
methods and discoveries in the future.
THE EDITORS.
