Description: Here is the book which presents for the first time America's food heritage -- in a superb collection of authentic and easily prepared American Indian re­cipes. From turkey and corn dishes of the Southeast, through recipes from the wild game country of the Great Plains to delectable seafood entrees of the Northwest Coast, this book pro­vides a unique and delicious gastro­nomic tour. 

Americans everywhere will find in this book the basic foods long familiar to them, and indigenous to their country. These taste-tempting dishes -- such as watercress soup, eggs and wild onions, and game bens with wild rice and filbert stuffing, as well as roast saddle of venison, cucumbers, and green peppers -- have been carefully researched and expertly presented. En­riched with the fascinating history and lore of Indian cuisine, and garnished with delightful illustrations by Miss Kimball, The Art of American Indian Cooking is a veritable cornucopia of superb recipes and Americana. 

The book is divided into five sections -- giving the characteristic recipes from each area of the country, cross-referenced according to category. In addition, there is a special Foreword by Will Rogers, Jr. and a Preface by Dr. Frederick J. Dockstader, Director, Museum of the American Indian, Heye Foundation. All of the nearly 200 flavor­ful dishes are presented in their original recipes, revised and tested to meet the demands of modern tastes and kitchens.
