Sunshine on a Rainy Morning

History shows that Hitler made a mistake invading Russia in World War II. What many people do not know is that the need for an alternative source of cooking oil for Germany and the Soviet sunflower fields were a contributing factor to his decision. In his book Sunflowers (the Secret History), Joe Pappalardo relates the unexpected history of this flower from caves in the Stone Age to the gardens of kings. Flower lovers, scientists, and trivia buffs will find this book entertaining reading as they learn of sunflowers influence on our lives.
