Rate this:
The companion volume to the most comprehensive of the Smithsonian's Quincentenary programs, the National Museum of Natural History's' "Seeds of Change" exhibition (October 1991 through April 1993). Informed, accessible, and beautifully illustrated, the volume traces the sometimes deliberate, sometimes unintentional exchanges of plants, animals, culture, and diseases between the Old and New Worlds over the course of 500 years since Columbus' voyages, focusing on five "seeds"--sugar, corn, the potato, disease, and the horse.
