Fifty Plants that Changed the Course of History by Bill Laws
Aside from being informative, we couldn’t resist the elegant botanical illustrations found in this book. If you're a history buff with a green thumb, this read is definitely a must-have. Each entry features a description of the plant, its botanical name, and its primary functions, to name a few. While we are all familiar with tea, cotton, and rice --- a couple of lesser-known plants are showcased, too like agave, pineapple, and sweet pea.
