The Field Guide to Fields by Bill Laws

National Geographic Books released "The Field Guide to Fields: Hidden Treasures of Meadows, Prairies and Pastures"

Fields is a fascinating read that provides a guide to the progression of fields over the course of human history.

Flowers, grains, crops, flowers and creatures great and small are included. There are several full-page crop descriptions with an identification guide, uses, cultivation history and primary growing area.

The illustrations are paintings that beautifully illustrate animals, crops and scenes from nature.

I've enjoyed reading and learning how they interacted and changed each other over time.

Fields is a 220 page paperback. $17.50 at the National Geographic link above.
