Lentils are an important food crop and survivial food. Known as "the poor man's meat" because of their outstanding protein content. Aalso a rich source of iron and other minerals. They fix ntrogen in the soil and grow in soil too poor for other crops. They cook in half the time as most grains, store well and tend to have few pests in storage. This excellent book goes beyond cultivation to its history, culture and status as a "sacred grain".
