  • The Viking in the Wheat Fieldby Susan Dworkin

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2009; US$ 11.99

    In 1999, a terrifying new form of stem rust--spotted in Uganda and dubbed "UG99"--quickly turned robust golden fields into dark, tangled ruins.

Since rust migrates high in the atmosphere, it could spread from country to country,... more...
