Summary
A journey surveying the remarkable innovations that transformed humankind into the sole agriculturists on our planet. Inasmuch as humankind has changed the species it domesticates, so have the plants and animals we cultivate and tend changed the shape of our history and lives. These interactions are the key not only to our rise but also our continued success on this planet. It's been suggested that if contributions from our domesticates suddenly stopped, civilization would almost certainly and instantly collapse
