Kraig Kraft on Chasing Chiles



There are plenty of great books out there on global warming, all full of dismaying facts and figures. But never before has our changing climate been viewed through the fiery lens of the chili pepper. In Chasing Chiles, Kraig Kraft (along with co-authors Kurt Michel Friese and Gary Paul Nabhan) embark on a "spice odyssey" across the US and Mexico. Their mission: talk to farmers, track rare species, and expose their tongues to the great spice spectrum of the mighty chili.
