Dig up the amazing stories of the plants that have transformed our lives.

Plants might start out as leafy things growing in the earth, but they can come into our lives in unexpected ways. And believe it or not, some have even played an exciting role in history.

Discover how:
• Countries went to war over pepper
• A grass called papyrus made it possible to share knowledge through writing
• Cotton improved the livelihoods of a few, but caused unthinkable suffering for many more

The ten plants in this book are the source of profound changes in the world, both good and bad. Through vibrant illustrations and astonishing facts, you’ll discover that without them, our lives today would be vastly different.
