Excerpt

irrigation; with this done, the wheat crop of the Pacific coast will outstrip in value, year after year, all the gold and silver that can be mined. Douglas Jerrold's famous saying applies to no other land so well as to this, for it indeed needs only "to be tickled with a hoe to smile with a harvest."

Reviews

Average Rating of 5 from 1 reviews: *****

Round the World is a classic I love the book and will recommend it to anybody. It give a vivid picture of Japan, China, Singapore, Egypt,Hindia and some other countries. If you check out all this countries almost a century after you can see that China that was written of as a never do well, Japan that was given some hope is a super power today while india that was not given a chance has gotten Atomic bomb.
This is a lession for the whole third world countries. If we put our act in order we too can become a super power in record time
