Plants and Civilization course

Two possible texts are:

Seeds to Civilization: The Story of Food by 
Charles B. Heiser, Jr. It is published by W.H. Freeman and Co.  The 
second edition that I use  has a 1981 copyright date.  

The Green World:  An Introduction to Plants and People.  by Richard M. 
Klein.  Harper & Row, Pub.  1979

I was introduced to these texts in a Plants and Civilization Course that 
I took almost 10 years ago at Univ. of Maryland.  Unfortunately the 
instructor did not make tenure and has left for hopefully greener 
pastures.  The course was great.  If I can find the syllabus I'll send 
you a copy.  I currently use both texts as supplemental reading in a 
high school botany course that I have been teaching for 6 years.
