It is the purpose of this study to show how the soil has affected the lives of the people of Tennessee, and how the people have adjusted themselves to the environmental factor of soil.

Insofar as possible the discussion is limited to the soil factors. However, for a state of such heterogeneous character as Tennessee it is often necessary to introduce other factors in order to explain variations from what one would normally expect. For instance, the influence of industrial developments within a region frequently offsets the advantages of one soil type over another.
