Wild, Tamed, Lost, Revived: The Surprising Story of Apples in the South by Diane Flynt with a foreword by Sean Brock and Photographs by Angie Mosier

A Ferris & Ferris book

Wild, Tamed, Lost, Revived is a personal journey through the storied orchards of the American South. From openings that read like a warm memoir set against meaty pockets of science, Diane Flynt underscores the how and why of southern apples.”—Vivian Howard, restauranter, author of Deep Run Roots: Stories and Recipes from My Corner of the South, and host of Somewhere South and A Chef’s Life

“Diane Flynt says it herself: she’s someone who loves nothing more than being at the top of a swing, because it lets her see the familiar with new eyes. . . . But now that we can see apples from her point of view—their stories, their botany, their place in creating, changing, and reflecting the landscape of the South and of our country—I have never been more fascinated by them. Diane’s a brilliant mind, a passionate grower, and a generous writer; this book is a gift.”—Francis Lam, host, The Splendid Table

Sharing Yerba Mate: How South America’s Most Popular Drink Defined a Region by Rebekah E. Pite

“Like an expert cebadora, Pite serves up a rich, complex, and deeply sensory brew—a story of yerba mate that spans centuries, empires, nations, environments, trade circuits, and preparations, yet fits satisfyingly in our hands. Throughout, Pite reveals how yerba mate’s production and consumption created bonds of community among South Americans even as it bound many in enduring hierarchies of difference and exploitation.”—Paulina L. Alberto, Harvard University, author of Black Legend: The Many Lives of Raúl Grigera and the Power of Racial Storytelling in Argentina

“Beautifully written and solidly grounded in multisite archival research. Pite displays a command of scholarly methodologies of the histories of Latin America, nationalism, and commodities, as well as visual culture and food studies.”—Jeffrey M. Pilcher, author of Planet Taco: A Global History of Mexican Food

Earning Their Wings: The WASPs of World War II and the Fight for Veteran Recognition by Sarah Parry Myers

“An excellent contribution to women’s history, aviation history, and military history.”—Lynn Dumenil, author of The Second Line of Defense: American Women and World War I

“An inspiring story of women who, though dismissed by many as mere novelties, combatted public suspicions and fears, subterfuge, and congressional resistance as they demanded an opportunity to serve in World War II and then waged an even longer war to be recognized as veterans. [This book] returns a fierce group of women pilots to their rightful place in history, at the center of vital questions about the meanings of women’s wartime service.”—Kara Dixon Vuic, author of The Girls Next Door: Bringing the Home Front to the Front Lines
