I suspect this book would be better in text form. I thought the title/premise was really interesting, so I bought it as a set of CDs for a long trip. This turned out to be a bad idea. The book is full of recipes from various parts of American in the 1930s and 1940s. In text form, I'd have skimmed the recipes and read the paragraphs of lore more fully. On CD, I was forced to listed to every detail of every recipe as each was read aloud. I'm ashamed to say I didn't finish it - But someday I'll fast forward to see if he has any NON-recipe chapters near the end!
