A Culinary History of the the American West. Frontier Recipes and Memories from the Pioneers of the Early West (1800-1915) by Cathy Luchetti
Winner of the James Beard Award for Best Writing on American Food
“Ms. Luchetti…offers a narrative that is as genial as it is general about the eating life along the trail..” Molly O’Neill, The New York Times
“Cathy Luchetti’s book, Home on the Rage, will keep every history buff and ‘foodie’ reader awake until 5 a.m. with her anecdoted and stories. She has chosen particularly pithy, sometimes poignant tidbits of food nostalgia from diaries and journals of the West.”
Samuel P. Arnold, Eating Up the Santa Fe Trail
“I find this book engrossing and fascinating–my father wrote about the common man, the one who went through hell to settle this country. In this book Luchetti describes a side of that hell too often overlooked — the lack of food..”
Angelique L’Amour, daughter of Louis L’Amour
