Still Hungry In America
Originally published in 1969, the documentary evidence of poverty and malnutrition in the American South showcased in Still Hungry in America still resonates today. The work was created to complement a July 1967 U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Employment, Manpower, and Poverty hearings on hunger in America.
This striking volume evokes the world of the South in photos and text. Award-winning photographer Clayton's (Still Hungry in America) black-and-white photos, taken between 1963 and 1989, inspired the monologues by Campbell ( author of the highly praised Forty Acres and a Goat and Brother to a Dragonfly) , in which fictional, archetypal Southerners speak about their lives.
For the cook who's cooked it all--new and wonderful dishes based on the creatures that crawl in our yards at night, swim in our drainage ditches, and flap around in vacant houses. The Claytons give new meaning to the old idiom "cooking from your own backyard". 20 full-color photographs.
