KIRKUS REVIEW

This book has an astonishing amount of interest for the layman, although its chief value will be for the plant pathologist, the scientist. Into a record of the march of the fungi, the battle of man against micro-organisms, there is a good deal of biographical data, there is history and adventure. All phases of related plant disease (rust, canker, mildew, etc.). Development over generations of methods of meeting the challenge. And, step by step, progress towards blight resistance and immunity. Tribute paid to contribution of U.S.
