This chapter discusses Joe Dan Boyd, the assistant managing editor at the Farm Journal in Philadelphia. Boyd grew up on a farm in Texas, and is an almost perfect example of a cultural unity that can be achieved when art and agriculture join hands. The chapter looks at Boyd's achievements as a writer through the years, starting with his first byline when he was fourteen years old. It also looks at Boyd as an authority on farm songs in music circles and as an authority on cotton in farming circles.

Keywords:   Joe Dan Boyd, Farm Journal, cultural unity, art, agriculture, achievements, music circles, farming circles
