The American Way of Eating: Undercover at Walmart, Applebee’s, Farm Fields and the Dinner Table

For nearly a year, Tracie McMillan worked, ate, and lived alongside the working poor who produce and sell America's food. In her book, The American Way of Eating: Undercover at Walmart, Applebee's, Farm Fields and the Dinner Table, McMillan brings readers into these grueling working conditions and shares the lives of those who feed us.
