THE STORY OF SEEDS: From Mendel's Garden to Your Plate, and How There's More of Less to Eat Around the World, by Nancy Castaldo
Something as small as a seed can have a world-wide impact. From Iraq to India to an impenetrable seed vault in a Norwegian mountainside, this book speaks to the current ways we think about our food, the more thoughtful and philosophical questions about regulating which crops farmers are allowed to grow, and what consumers are able to eat. Readers will discover just how important seeds are to the functioning of our global economy and how much power we as a world-wide community have to keep seeds around, because once a seed disappears, it's gone forever. From the Booklist *Starred Review*: "Just like a seed, this deceptively small book is packed with potent life. A terrific, engrossing resource."
