about

This lively history follows the pecan from primordial Southern groves to the contemporary Chinese marketplace to reveal how a nut with a very limited natural range has become a global commodity and endangered heirloom. The cover design is an elegant reinterpretation of a botanical illustration featuring the pecan tree and nut.
