Botany of Desire: A Plant's-Eye View of the World: Reviewed

Author:Michael Pollan
Reading Level (Conceptual):Children 12 and up
Reading Level (Vocabulary):Children 12 and up
Genre:non-fiction
Year of publication:2006

Elegant essays about the symbiotic relationship between certain plants and humans. The discussions about the way tulips and potatoes changed human history ought to change the way any reader thinks about gardens and commercial agriculture.

Moral: Just because we think we're at the top of the food chain, that doesn't mean we can't be manipulated by things we believe we subjugate.

-- Emily
