Summary
Using long-forgotten WPA files archived in the Library of Congress, bestselling author Mark Kurlansky paints a detailed picture of Depression Era Americans through the food that they ate and the local traditions and customs they observed when planning and preparing meals
Summary
FDR’s little-known Depression-era program, “America Eats,” sent writers to diverse regional niches gathering stories, photos, anecdotes, and authentic recipes reflecting local peoples’ struggle for food. From New York automats to Arkansas possum-eating clubs, from Puget Sound salmon feasts to Choctaw funerals, discover a history of pre-WWII food cultures and curiosities recovered from Library of Congress records
