Overview:

America Eats!: On the Road with the WPA : Pat Willard takes readers on a journey into the regional nooks and crannies of American cuisine where WPA writers - including Eudora Welty, Saul Bellow, Ralph Ellison, and Nelson Algren, among countless others - were dispatched in 1935 to document the roots of our diverse culinary history. America Eats!, as the project was entitled, was never published. The victim of dwindling WPA funds and a bureaucratic editorial hatchet job, the original text lies in pieces in archives across the country. With the unpublished WPA manuscript as her guide, Willard visits the sites of American food's past glory to rediscover the vibrant foundation of America's traditional cuisine. Featuring recipes and photos, America Eats! is a vibrant celebration of American food, past and present.
