Borlaug: Volume 3 Bread winner 1960-1969
By Noel Vietmeyer
Off and on over the years, the two [Borlaug and Noel] traveled together, and Borlaug eventually related roughly 300 personal experiences. They included life-and-death adventures as well as coincidences, escapes from financial disaster, squabbles with those who disagreed with his methods (virtually everyone), and farmers who many times came to the rescue just as his program was about to be axed. These stories make up the heart and soul of this multivolume biography of the unheralded scientist who gave the world its daily bread.
