Beautifully illustrated and brimful of fascinating information on the history of cereal grains, this book is a treasure for anyone interested in the most vital food crops known to humankind. Our Daily Bread describes the vast implications of the genetic changes in cereal crops throughout 10,000 years of cultivation, examining the evolution and amazing diversity of rice, corn, wheat, barley, oats, rye, sorghum and millets. Though a translation of a book with a Nordic focus, the scope is worldwide. Åsmund Bjørnstad is a professor of genetics and plant biology at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences in Ås, Norway.
