About the Author

author picAndrew Beahrs's writing takes deep dives into unexpected historical pools. In Twain's Feast: Searching for America's Lost Foods in the Footsteps of Samuel Clemens, he explored the links between flavor and place that defined Mark Twain's favorite wild dishes--and have since caused them to disappear from American tables.  He has written about oyster farming, abalone diving, open-fire cooking in Ethiopia, Illinois prairie-hens, and ocean upwelling for such publications as Smithsonian Magazine, The New York Times, The Atlantic, Gastronomica, Virginia Quarterly Review, and many more. His pair of companion historical novels, Strange Saint and The Sin Eaters, drew on his graduate work in archaeology to offer a unique vision of early America. Andrew lives in Berkeley with his wife and children.
