Nothing less than the future of American public education is at stake as two teachers set out on a quest for the Holy Grail of education, the reason for declining test scores. Nothing you've ever read will quite prepare you for the roller coaster imagination of Larry Baldwin in his book, Corn-Fed. From treatises on the environment and the state of public education to the dirty business of political money-laundering and international finance, he tackles it all in a modern day Odyssey-like adventure stretching from France's Mississippi Valley Empire in 1700 to the gene-altering labs of the present. Buckle your safety belts!
