A close look at milk and its history as a pure and modern consumer product in American culture. This book explores the changing perseptions of milk, connecting the development of dairy farming to changing practices of buying milk products. It traces the processes of milk production and consumption through the stories of four different dairy goods: fluid milk, butter, ice cream, and the detritus of dairy processing (whey, skim milk, and milk proteins).
