Borlaug, Volume 1 Right off the Farm
By Noel Vietmeyer
This volume highlights the amazing chain of circumstance that produced the Nobel Peace Prize winner Norman Borlaug as well as his super-producing wheat. Volume 1 opens this series, laying the foundation for the human drama behind all that hardly known history. It divulges the searing experiences that developed Norman Borlaug's dedication, drive and motivation to help the hungry. A powerful blend of biography, history, science, adventure, and what might be called the American spirit. A replacement for Version 1.0, this particular printing incorporates several hundred modifications that illuminate or enrich the opening saga. This version also omits the previous subtitle [The Mild-Mannered Maverick who fed a Billion People].
