James McWilliams: "The Pecan"

Thursday, Oct 10, 2013 7:00p
BookPeople Austin, TX

In The Pecan, acclaimed writer and historian James McWilliams explores the history of America’s most important commercial nut. More than 300 million pounds of pecans are produced every year in the United States. McWilliams warns that, as ubiquitous as the pecan has become, it is vulnerable to a “perfect storm” of economic threats and ecological disasters that could wipe it out within a generation. This lively history suggests why the pecan deserves to be recognized as a true American heirloom.
