Spirit of the Harvest: North American Indian Cooking

This hard to find hard cover cookbook is an EX-LIBRARY BOOK with a few stickers and stamps, but in good used condition.

The dust jacket has minimal wear to the dust jacket from re-shelving. The front and back covers are cloth covered--a milk chocolate brown--and a little tape reside from the library is still shows in some places, but the dust jacket covers it up.

The cookbook is a 1st Edition/2nd Printing from 1991 and in lightly read and used condition with except for a small library sticker on the first blank page, the other pages are at least 98% free of any marks, stains or writing.

Features traditional dishes from the Chippewa, Sioux, Comanche, Hopi, and many other North American tribes, illustrated with 50 color photos. Each chapter opens with an essay on the Indians of the region, describing their cultures, diets, ceremonial use of food, and the historic dishes they developed.

This handsome volume provides an impressive record of the tribal cooking of the North American Indians. The recipes, organized by region, have been adapted for contemporary kitchens but are as authentic as possible, emphasizing native ingredients over those introduced by the Europeans.

The dishes themselves are generally simple, but varied and even exotic--Smoked Salmon Soup, Maple-Basted Broiled Bluefish, Cranberry Fritters. Cox's recipe headnotes are eminently readable mini-histories, filled with information on the various tribes, their histories, and their customs. Jacobs's color photographs of the food feature Indian artifacts, and the page borders and line drawings scattered throughout reproduce tribal motifs and designs. One of the few recent books on the subject, this is a unique work; highly recommended.

This is a "must have" cookbook if you'd like to prepare authentic Native American food. The ingredients are easy to find in any well stocked grocery store, and the recipes are not difficult. No "weird" ethnic foods here- just good meals made with what's available. The historical background for the foods of different tribes is an interesting read. The photographs and drawings are absolutely beautiful- those alone are good reasons to purchase this book!

REMEMBER----cookbooks are mailed via media rate mail to give you the best deal on shipping. The down side is that media rate mail can take up to three weeks for delivery!
