The Fate of the Fruit that Changed the World
by Dan Koeppel
Banana takes you from jungle to supermarket, from corporate boardrooms to kitchen tables around the world. Highly entertaining, Koeppel chronicles the fruit’s history, from early cultivation to modern popularization, and suggests ways to save it from extinction. Koeppel has written for the New York Times Magazine, Outside, Audubon, Popular Science, and National Geographic Adventure. He is also the author of To See Every Bird on Earth (2005).
