Book Review: Enduring Seeds

Enduring Seeds: Native American Agriculture and Wild Plant Conservation By Gary Paul Nabhan

Nabhan, one of America's leading ethnobotanists, takes you on a journey around the world to find seeds. Some seeds are native, others foreign, while some are abundant, others close to extinct. Each seed has a story, guiding the reader along a historical epic, generating a call to action wildlife and animal conservationists have provided for years. What makes Enduring Seeds unique is its obligation to spread the story of the loss of plant species in order to plant and grow a concerned, impassioned audience.
