The American Way of Eating
The American Way of Eating Undercover at Walmart, Applebee's, Farm Fields and the Dinner Table By McMillan, Tracie Book - 2012

This book recounts the author's experience working on farms in California, working various jobs including produce at Walmart, and working in the kitchen at Applebees. Throughout the text, a greater examination of the constructs of the food industry and systems help us understand some of the larger issues at play politically, economically, and socially. There are so many wonderful footnotes documenting many of the assertions made, and picking from a few of those created another reading list of interest.

I enjoy these non-fiction books. I did not find the "arc" very compelling, but I enjoyed reading the book page by page, cover to cover.
