Tomatoes (A True Book)

By Elaine Landau

As with the other books written by this author, this text provides an accurate and comprehensive look at tomatoes. From the early cultivation of tomatoes by the Aztecs to the introduction of the tomato to Europe by the Spanish Conquistadors and modern culture today, the text and photos tell tomato's story. The author has even depicted and described backyard, greenhouse and large scale tomato production. The story of processing the tomato into a variety of products is enhanced by including the rise of the Campbell Soup Company. The book ends with a good glossary.
