Eating Across America

A Foodie's Guide to Food Trucks, Street Food and the Best Food in the States

By Daymon "Daym Drops" Patterson

Eating Across America is the perfect book for the travel foodie in all of us.

Eating Across America is a taste bud party of the countrys best food trucks, street foods and cheap eats. Sometimes messy, but always made with love, eating out at local trucks and hole in the walls has become a movement. Daymon Patterson, better known as Daymn Drops on YouTube and as the food correspondent on the award-winning Rachel Ray Show, details the definitive road map to truly tasting Americana. Daymon initially gained popularity on YouTube for his video review of a Five Guys takeout meal, which spawned into a viral sensation. Since then, Patterson's taste for quick and delicious meals has continued to grow, resulting in the mega successful digital series: pickup truck food reviews. Prior to joining Rachel Ray, he hosted Best Daym Fast Takeout, on the Travel Channel, detailing the best spots for quick bite. With recent works featured on The Jimmy Fallon show, Daymon’s culinary journey continues to grow. 

"Having become friends with Daym Drops -- after he hilariously, and quite candidly, reviewed my families Wahlburgers restaurant -- I quickly realized that behind the outrageous comedy of his uniquely outrageous internet food reviews, is an incredibly unique man. A man with a giant heart, matched only by his giant frame and equally giant appetite. But, whether you know him personally or not, one thing is clear to anyone whose laughed their asses off to his culinary critiques - Daym Drops knows food! As a food critic, and as a friend, I give him five stars -- and you better believe the screen is shaking too, foodie fam!"

           -Donnie Wahlberg, co-owner of Wahlburgers

Saigon Kids

By

Looking for unusual coming of age books? Follow the coming of age adventures of a U.S. military brat during the early Vietnam war years in Saigon

The early Vietnam war years through the eyes of a U.S. military brat: In May of 1962, Naval Chief Petty Officer Bryant Arbuckle flew to Saigon to establish a new Armed Forces radio station. Next to follow were his wife and three boys, Leslie among them. Saigon Kids is the candid, recondite slice of fourteen-year-old military brat Les Arbuckle’s experience at the American Community School (ACS) during the critical months of the Vietnam War when events would, quite literally, ignite in downtown Saigon. In 1963, Saigon was beautiful, violent, and dirty – and the most exciting place a fourteen-year-old American boy could live. Saigon offered a rich array of activities, and much to the consternation of their parents and teachers, Les and his fellow military brats explored the dangers with reckless abandon running from machine gun fire, watching a Buddhist monk burn to death, visiting brothels late at night or, trading currency on the black market

Coming of age in the streets of Vietnam War torn Saigon: When Les first arrives in Vietnam, he is a stranger in a strange land, expecting boredom in a country he doesn’t know. But the American social scene is more vibrant than he expected. The American Community School is a blend of kids from all over the globe who arrived in Saigon as the fuse on Saigon was about to ignite. As the ACS students continue their American lifestyle behind barbed wire, Saigon unravels in chaos and destruction. In spite of this ugliness – an ever-present feature of everyday life -- Les tells his story of teenage angst with humor and precocity. 

Coming of age tale with a twist:The events leading up to the Vietnam War provide an unusual backdrop for this coming-of-age tale with a twist. Saigon Kids will also make a perfect companion to the documentary film (sponsored by the New York Foundation for the Arts) currently in production. The film chronicles the lives of “military brats” living in Saigon in the volatile years from 1958 to 1964.
