Plants are all around us, but if you dig a little deeper, they have some amazing stories to tell! Would you believe some plants have even played a dramatic role in world history?

Gillian Richardson’s new book will open your eyes to the world-changing effects of “ordinary” plants like chocolate, tea, sugarcane, cotton, potatoes and corn, and unusual ones like rubber, cinchona, and papyrus. Learn how plants have inspired research and new products, opened up paths to profits for businesses and smugglers alike, saved lives, led to trouble for people who grow them, started a war, and made it possible for you to read this book.
