    The book tells how most seeds begin from a flower. The book talks about pollination, and then shares a variety of ways by which seeds may travel from one location to another. The book then shows the germination process by which a seed begins sprouting a root and then eventually a shoot and leaves. A personal and highly original take on the history of six commercial plants, Seeds of Change illuminates how sugar, tea, cotton, the potato, quinine, and the cocoa plant have shaped our past. In this fascinating account, the impassioned Henry Hobhouse explains the consequences of these plants with attention-grabbing historical moments. While most records of history focus on human influence 4/5(5).
