Green Revolutionary -- Norman E. Borlaug, the Man who Fed the World

Unlike all the crunchy celebrity frenzy in modern news and media, Norman E. Borlaug is a stranger in the world of instant recognition. How ironic, this is the man, who had done enormous service to the entire world population by developing wheat variety that doubled, and even trippled food production from one corner of globe to another. Even his recent biography by Leon Hesser is "Temporarily Out of Stock", and none of his own books are available for purchase from any major book sellers today. It was not that he didn't get his deserved "recognition". He did get it. Nobel Prize was awarded to him for peace, and from American government he received Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Congressional Gold Medal.
