The Story of Corn
North Point Press/Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 1992 - Technology & Engineering - 356 pages
Now in paperback for the first time, The Story of Corn is Betty Fussell's mesmerizing account of the extraordinary grain that built the New World. In a form as uniquely hybrid as its subject, it blends history and myth, science and art, anecdote and image, personal narrative and epic to tell the story of this amazing crop and the people who for seven centuries have planted, eaten, worshipped, processed, and profited from it.
