Description: Here are over 100 authentic recipes of classic pioneer food, the food that Laura Ingalls and her family ate as they traveled from the woods of Wisconsin to the Dakota Territory. All of these recipes, from pancake men to vanity cakes, are mentioned in her beloved "Little House" books, and all have been adapted for a modern kitchen.
Even more than a cookbook, though, this collection is a social history of frontier life. On the frontier, feeding the family was a task that took most of everyone's time. Pa pursued the food with gun, trap, and plow; Ma prepared and preserved it; and the children helped in both activities. This cookbook celebrates the rich communion of a pioneer family working, cooking, and eating together, in a time when putting food on the table meant more than just a meal; it meant survival.
Condition: Good condition.
