Excerpt from The Story of a Grain of Wheat
The story Of a grain Of wheat must be at the same time the story Of a sack Of ﬂour and the story Of a loaf Of bread, in order to be at all com prehensive, and yet we may not, for lack Of space, dwell upon the technical making Of ﬂour or the baking Of bread. Each Of these subjects would require a book in itself, and many books there are, printed in various tongues, which treat Of them. Wheat is ﬂour, ﬂour is bread, and bread is food, the chief Of all foods; man's constant mainstay and support from time immemorial, the primary Object in his struggle for existence. Food for the stomach takes precedence in the long list Of man's demands upon the world, and bread has been the cry Of the needy Since history's beginning.
The story Of a grain Of wheat tells the story Of man's long-continued struggle for plenty; the response Of nature to her children asking for food; the emergence Of mankind from savagery, when, regardless Of anything save the pangs Of hunger, the first miller plucked the berry from the stalk and, using his teeth for mill-stones, ground grist for a customer who would not be denied - his stomach.
