THE FOOD EXPLORER
"The next time you mash up a batch of guacamole, thank David Fairchild. The late-19th-century botanist traveled the world from Chile to Japan, bringing avocados, mangoes, and more back to the U.S. His adventures come vividly to life in The Food Explorer."
—Martha Stewart Living
"A must read for anyone who grows plants, eats food, or just loves to read."
— National Tropical Botanical Garden
"The next time you devour an overpriced slice of avocado toast, munch on some kale or serve yourself some quinoa, you’re sampling just a few of the crops that Fairchild introduced to the American public. The Food Explorer offers a look at his journeys around the world and how he changed the American diet."
