Farming across Borders uses agricultural history to connect the regional experiences of the American West, northern Mexico, western Canada, and the North American side of the Pacific Rim, now writ large into a broad history of the North American West. Case studies of commodity production and distribution, trans-border agricultural labor, and environmental change unite to reveal new perspectives on a historiography traditionally limited to a regional approach. Sterling Evans has curated nineteen essays to explore the contours of “big” agricultural history. Crops and commodities discussed include wheat, cattle, citrus, pecans, chiles, tomatoes, sugar beets, hops, henequen, and more. Toiling over such crops, of course, were the people of the North American West, and as such, the contributing authors investigate the role of agricultural labor, from braceros and Hutterites to women working in the sorghum fields and countless other groups in between. As Evans concludes, “society as a whole (no matter in what country) often ignores the role of agriculture in the past and the present.” Farming across Borders takes an important step toward cultivating awareness and understanding of the agricultural, economic, and environmental connections that loom over the North American West regardless of lines on a map. In the words of one essay, “we are tied together . . . in a hundred different ways.”

IACP Award winner for Culinary History: This fascinating true story is “a treasure” (Weekly Alibi). Precious Cargo tells the tale of how foods from the western hemisphere conquered the globe and saved it from mass starvation. Focusing heavily on American foods, specifically the lowly crops that became commodities—plus one gobbling protein source, the turkey—Dave DeWitt describes how these foreign and often suspect temptations were transported around the world, transforming cuisines and the very fabric of life on the planet. Organized thematically by foodstuff, Precious Cargo delves into the botany, zoology, and anthropology connected to New World foods—often uncovering surprising individuals who were responsible for their spread and influence, including traders; brutish conquerors; a Scottish millionaire obsessed with a single fruit; and a British lord and colonial governor with a passion for peppers, to name a few.

The scent of oregano immediately conjures the comforts of Italian food, curry is synonymous with Indian flavor, and the fire of chili peppers ignites the cuisine of Latin America. Spices are often the overlooked essentials that define our greatest eating experiences. In this global history of spices, Fred Czarra tracks the path of these fundamental ingredients from the trade routes of the ancient world to the McCormick’s brand’s contemporary domination of the global spice market. Focusing on the five premier spices—black pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and chili pepper—while also relating the story of many others along the way, Czarra describes how spices have been used in cooking throughout history and how their spread has influenced regional cuisines around the world. Chili peppers, for example, migrated west from the Americas with European sailors and spread rapidly in the Philippines and then to India and the rest of Asia, where the spice quickly became essential to local cuisines. The chili pepper also traveled west from India to Hungary, where it eventually became the national spice—paprika. Mixing a wide range of spice fact with fascinating spice fable—such as giant birds building nests of cinnamon—Czarra details how the spice trade opened up the first age of globalization, prompting a cross-cultural exchange of culinary technique and tradition. This savory spice history will enliven any dinner table conversation—and give that meal an unforgettable dash of something extra.

Permanent weight loss and great health can be found in the produce section of any grocery store. Not just a source to spice up salsa, chili peppers can curb the appetite, reduce unhealthy cravings, increase metabolism, reduce hypertension and even enhance sexual performance. In this bold new book, author Heidi Allison shares with readers the diet she developed that helped her effortlessly lose 90 pounds while eating tasty foods in satisfying portions. Allison provides solutions to the drawbacks of conventional diets by addressing a variety of health benefits related to chilies. She emphasizes the beneficial effects of capsaicin, an active chemical found in chili peppers. This chemical activates the same neuronal pathways as fat, sending the signal to the brain that you are full. Capsaicin also triggers the release of endorphins and serotonin, which makes the individual feel better both physically and emotionally. Spectacular Southwestern-themed color photographs educate readers on the many varieties of chili peppers. Allison provides readers with "hot hints" on how to incorporate chilies into their diets-even if they dislike spicy foods. Also included are: a complete list of chilies and their associated heat levels, flavors and culinary uses; a two-week menu plan; 150 easy-to-follow recipes; and a workbook to track eating patterns, food triggers and responses to stress.
