Recipes from the Past used by characters in Dorothy Garlock's books of Early America

In my books of the Old West, I have tried to show you the world in which our ancestors lived and in which my characters made their way: to let you smell the wilderness, feel the rockiness of the road as metal-bound wagon wheels jolted you along the trail, experience the loneliness of the endless prairie and shiver in the icy mountain streams. These recipes are intended to bring you the flavor of the food. Here are thirty recipes, just as they were passed among the settlers-imprecise and improvised-not especially for your kitchen or table but food for your imagination.
