Tales of a Farmboy isn't just the life story of a farmer and his struggles (though it is that, too). It warmly relates the peaks and valleys in one man's life, told with a great depth of feeling, and with great humility and humor. Clarence Salmon paints pictures with his stories and poems, and the reader can almost smell the scents and hear the sounds that his vivid descriptions evoke. This book is filled with first-person accounts of a simpler time, when going to church meant hitching up the horse and buggy, when Christmas was truly a homegrown affair, and where children could actually go sledding down the middle of Allen Hill Road without danger. It describes the author's firsthand experiences with the traumatic events of the times, such as the stock market crash of 1929, when he was a twenty-year-old bellhop at a well-to-do Florida hotel, as well as the destruction of the 1938 hurricane - "The Storm of Storms". Together, Clarence and Donna Salmon have created a wonderful reading experience which follows one man's journey from cradle to old age using love, faith, determination, strength of character, perseverance and a great sense of humor. A true piece of Americana.

When the Spanish began colonizing the Americas in the late fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, they brought with them the plants and foods of their homeland—wheat, melons, grapes, vegetables, and every kind of Mediterranean fruit. Missionaries and colonists introduced these plants to the native peoples of Mexico and the American Southwest, where they became staple crops alongside the corn, beans, and squash that had traditionally sustained the original Americans. This intermingling of Old and New World plants and foods was one of the most significant fusions in the history of international cuisine and gave rise to many of the foods that we so enjoy today. Gardens of New Spain tells the fascinating story of the diffusion of plants, gardens, agriculture, and cuisine from late medieval Spain to the colonial frontier of Hispanic America. Beginning in the Old World, William Dunmire describes how Spain came to adopt plants and their foods from the Fertile Crescent, Asia, and Africa. Crossing the Atlantic, he first examines the agricultural scene of Pre-Columbian Mexico and the Southwest. Then he traces the spread of plants and foods introduced from the Mediterranean to Spain's settlements in Mexico, New Mexico, Arizona, Texas, and California. In lively prose, Dunmire tells stories of the settlers, missionaries, and natives who blended their growing and eating practices into regional plantways and cuisines that live on today in every corner of America.
