This book, the first of three volumes, chronicles a highly personal journey, with plenty of loafing stops along the way, through the hills and hollows of Southern Appalachia, in search of the tastes that define and sustain the region’s people. Join food writer Fred Sauceman as the sorghum syrup thickens in September, as the First Family of Country Music repeats the late summer ritual of making the vinegary, vegetable-packed relish called chow-chow in Virginia, and as ramps, audacious cousins to the green onion, first push through winter’s leaves on the forest floor near the Cherokee reservation in North Carolina. Learn pimento cheese techniques from octogenarian pharmacists, eat gas station pizza off a warm car hood, and revel in the simple but ingenious concoction called “Beans All the Way.”

Tramp’s Wallet, A
By author: Sam Pickering
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: P424
ISBN: 9780881462357
Product Format: Paperback
Availability: In stock
Price: $25.00
In A Tramp’s Wallet, Sam Pickering spends six months roaming Australia and New Zealand, tramping landscapes pocked by sheep stations, art galleries and bakeries, and always libraries, their dusty shelves troves quick with life and literature. The saunterings of one of America’s best and most popular essayists stretch the seams of A Tramp’s Wallet. Far from the hoes and saws that prune days into convention, life flourishes, and this book is weedy and rankly rich with thought and description. “Lord,” St. Odo of Cluny said on his deathbed, “I have loved the beauty of thy house.” Pickering records his love of that house, and, if truth must out, his love for a few neglected out buildings—barns and backhouses, even the ramshakled huts of thought.
