Each month, the University of Chicago Press offers a free ebook download.
For November 2022, the free ebook was written by a sociologist and published in 2015:

Edible Memory
The Lure of Heirloom Tomatoes and Other Forgotten Foods
Jennifer A. Jordan
"In Edible Memory, Jennifer A. Jordan examines the ways that people around the world have sought to identify and preserve old-fashioned varieties of produce. In doing so, Jordan shows that these fruits and vegetables offer a powerful emotional and physical connection to a shared genetic, cultural, and culinary past."

You don't have to be a current subscriber to get the ebook.
You do have to enter your email address to get it, though.
The offer is at the bottom of the page at

Thanks for the link. I got it and have started reading it. Would be interested to hear what other people think.
