"An extremely valuable and splendidly original contribution to the cultural geography of Mexico. Bruman's maps challenge us to construct geographies of foodways and beverage consumption patters for modern Mexico. Virtually unique in the geographic literature about Mexico."
-- Daniel D Arreola, Arizona State Univ.

"The cultivation of so many plants for drinking speaks to cultures of exquisite depth and sophistication, able to lavish time and knowledge on the pursuit of distillation and leisure. This is a seasoned and already classic treatment."
-- Paul Starrs, editor of Geographical Review
