Fruit from the Sands Book Description:

"A comprehensive and entertaining historical and botanical review, providing an enjoyable and cognitive read.”—Nature The foods we eat have a deep and often surprising past. From almonds and apples to tea and rice, many foods that we consume today have histories that can be traced out of prehistoric Central Asia along the tracks of the Silk Road to kitchens in Europe, America, China, and elsewhere in East Asia. The exchange of goods, ideas, cultural practices, and genes along these ancient routes extends back five thousand years, and organized trade along the Silk Road dates to at least Han Dynasty China in the second century BC. Balancing a broad array of archaeological, botanical, and historical evidence, Fruit from the Sands presents the fascinating story of the origins and spread of agriculture across Inner Asia and into Europe and East Asia. Through the preserved remains of plants found in archaeological sites, Robert N. Spengler III identifies the regions where our most familiar crops were domesticated and follows their routes as people carried them around the world. With vivid examples, Fruit from the Sands explores how the foods we eat have shaped the course of human history and transformed cuisines all over the globe.

Sands of Time Book Description:

Soula Deveraine wants to make the most of her Second Hunt since the previous disaster ten years ago. She’s determined to court or be courted in the next eight weeks. When she stumbles into a kidnapping gone wrong, a decades-old feud between the Deveraine and Vaughn Clans is revived. Her bad luck continues from a rejected Soul-bond, a mysterious cursed diary and the handsome Orion Kuroe who doesn’t fit any of her daydreams. Can she survive the danger—or worse, the heartbreak? Orion Kuroe isn’t looking for love anywhere—he doesn’t have the time or heart to spare. His latest clue is a cursed diary with vital information to his inter-realm investigation. Translating it is his top priority, but he isn’t prepared for the translator to be gorgeous trouble-magnet Soula Deveraine. He needs her help, he doesn’t want her heart—but is that choice really up to him?
