Reviews
"During antebellum times, genteel Northerners linked the peanut to rowdyism. In the South, peanuts were considered food fit only for slaves....This 'nutty tale' follows the legume's journey to becoming a dietary staple. In the process, Smith examines what the peanut's story can tell us about larger social and historical issues."
