KIRKUS REVIEW

All you want to know about family gramaneae in an attractive survey that brings a specialized subject interestingly to the layman's level. Twelve chapters, profusely illustrated with clean cut drawings by Glen Rounds, describe grass in anatomical cross section, as its species cover the world, as it grows from seed to green pasture, as it manifests itself in society as a milk producing agent or a conserver or the impetus for religious rites like the Hop corn dance. Fine for fifth grade on and as a supplement to a book like the Schneiders' .
