Teaser Tuesday: The Omnivore's Dilemma

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!

Just do the following:

- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
- Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers
When George Naylor's grandfather was farming, the typical Iowa farm was home to whole families of different plant and animal species, corn being only the fourth most common.  Horses were the first, because every farm needed working animals (there were only 225 tractors in all of American in 1920), followed by cattle, chickens, and then corn.
~ Michael Pollan, The Omnivore's Dilemma, Part Two, Chapter 3
