Driving due south from KC we inadvertently happen upon the George Washington Carver National Monument in Diamond, Missouri, where "The Plant Doctor" was born.

An American treasure, for true. 

"As a very small boy exploring the almost virgin woods of the old Carver place I had the impression someone had just been there ahead of me... I was practically overwhelmed with the sense of some Great Presence... I knew even then it was the Great Spirit of the universe... Never since have I been without this consciousness of the Creator speaking to me through flowers, rocks, animals, plants and all other aspects of his creations."

(Peter Duncan Burchard)
