JIM BRUNER R E C O M M E N D S : “Appetite for America: Fred Harvey and the Business of Civilizing the Wild West — One Meal at a Time” by Stephen Fried

H I S TA K E “Harvey, born in England, came to America as a teenager, settling in lower Manhattan and working as a dishwasher. His story begins there, but his creativity and hard work led him to working with railroads and opening up the West with his Harvey Girls and passion for good food and service. All this led to stops in Arizona, ending at the Grand Canyon. If you admire the ingenuity of an individual and love the Southwest, you will not be disappointed.”
