The Mysterious Grain


1 in stock


Authors: Elting, Mary (1906-2005) and Folsom, Michael (1938-1990)

Publisher: M. Evans and Company

Pub Date: 1967 (First edition)

Binding: Hardcover

Condition: Good.  Binding tight.  No marks, tears, bends or folds.  Without dust jacket.  For being 50+ years old, this book looks untouched (except for the previous owners tossing the dust jacket).

Notes: This is a history of corn.  I’d call this a ” upper level mid-school textbook.”  It’s not simplistic–the writers make no assumptions about reading levels–but it is an easy read, and good with the facts (Bat Cave, MacNeish, etc.).   Elting (Mary Elting Folsom) and her husband Franklin Folsom (1907-1995) had a dedicated career writing and editing children’s books.  Michael Folsom was their son.
