Reach into the grain bin for a handful of wheat...and as it ì runs out through your fingers, so do more than 6000 years since ì wheat was grown in Persian Gulf lands. The story of this age-old, ì most extensive grain crop the world has ever seen, parallels that ì of mankind and author Kirby Brumfield makes the point clear. ì Wheat in the Northwest? Yes, it's all here, acres of it in ì Oregon, Washington, and Idaho. The lore of the harvest is the ì keynote of Brumfield's presentation... the romance of growing and ì harvesting the crop, and the growing civilization of humanity, ì adept at improving its lot and more skilled at the mechanics of ì living... until in 1831 Cyrus McCormick demonstrated a reaper ì that revolutionized wheat harvesting. Brumfield approaches this ì vast subject with considerable facility and sows grains of ì interest in every paragraph. He lifts farming right out of the ì soil into fascinating history, with accent on the Northwest.
