  • The Poppy: A History of Conflict, Loss, Remembrance and Redemption, Nicholas J. Saunders, OneWorld Publications, 2014. An history of the common corn or field poppy and the opium poppy, this charming read includes stories about the Bubby Poppy Girls (Doris Day was one in 1950 and Natalie Wood in 1957); how animals, exposed to modern warfare during the Vietnamese War, became opium addicts; and why Monticello no longer grows opium poppies (the Drug Enforcement Agency threatened action against them).
