Sir Robert Schomburgk's history of Barbados, the island that was once Britain's foremost colonial possession in the Western Hemisphere, is a massive and all-embracing study of its subject.

"Fancy a slice of cherry pie? Let's get started. . . . What, no bowl? No pie pan? No pot holders? Join our young baker (and her little dog!) as they travel the United States—from New Hampshire to Hawaii, from Alaska to Texas—in search of the coal, cotton, clay, and granite they need to create all their baking tools. In a companion to her bestselling How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World, two-time Caldecott Honor illustrator Marjorie Priceman takes us on a round-the-U.S.A. journey by riverboat, taxi, train, and plane in a culinary adventure—and a playful celebration of America's natural resources."
