Description
 
Leah Hager Cohen (au). As technology makes certain kinds of information more accessible, other connections are irrevocably lost. Here Cohen traces three simple commodities on their geographic & semantic journey from her table to their various points of origin. She provides intimate portraits of three workers -- Ruth Lamp, a nightshift supervisor at the Anchor Hocking glass factory in Ohio; Brent Boyd, a 3rd-generation lumberjack from Canada; & Basilion Salinas, a man who tends the coffee trees at Pluma Hidalgo, Mexico. Cohen braids the lives of these three unforgettable workers as she traces the origins, myths, & manufacture of glass, paper, & the beloved coffee bean.
