At the turn of the 20th century, David Fairchild and his team of USDA botanists circled the world in search of novel plants—and in turn, they transformed the American diet. Join their adventures with National Geographic writer Daniel Stone, author of The Food Explorer: The True Adventures of the Globe-Trotting Botanist Who Transformed What America Eats.
