From Daniel Stone, a bestselling account of the adventures of American food spy David Fairchild, who introduced hundreds of crops—including avocados, mangoes, and dates—to a hungry country.
In the nineteenth century, American meals were about subsistence, not enjoyment. But as a new century approached, appetites broadened, and David Fairchild, a young botanist with an insatiable lust to explore and experience the world, set out in search of foods that would enrich the American farmer and enchant the American eater.
