Twain's Feast: Searching for America's Lost Foods in the Footsteps of Samuel Clemens - Andrew Beahrs It's easy to think of ideas like sustainable foods, food deserts and locally sourced foods as trendy, hipster concepts that are easily mocked, but Mr. Bearhs makes the point that such concepts are in fact a return to the source of good, truly American cuisine. He also makes a strong case for the necessity of sustainable and locally-sourced food as a way of preserving the environment, and he does all of this in eminently readable prose, both his own and in well-selected quotes from Mark Twain.
