Melting Pot

by Pat Willard

The manuscript for this book was the product of a project started by the WPA, but it was never published. Various authors, such as Eudora Welty, Saul Bellow, Ralph Ellison, and others were sent all over the United States to gather information on regional cuisine. The photos are originals as well, taken by Dorthea Lange, Ben Shahn, Marion Post Wolcott, and others.

I found it at the library. I was published this year with notes and additions by Pat Willard. I'll post more about the observations that I read about.
