John C. Weaver, Professor of Geography at the University of Minnesota, compiled this exhaustive look at the history of barley cultivation in the United States. He starts with a look at the earliest civilizations to include barley among their farming staples -- most notably the Egyptians. The story then shifts to an indepth study of barley cultivation in the U.S. from 1839 to the post-World War II era. Weaver examines the historical spread of barley farming from east to west, and explains the many influences that caused the westward movement. A large number of maps and charts help illustrate the story.
