I bought this book for my husband who loves to cook and eat. Most of his reading is technical - related to cars, motorcycles and gardening. He has been so involved in this book, he even stayed away from his computer. Historical information has prompted him to read parts out loud for me. We both were surprised to learn about the connection between feeding early American families and finding works of African-American authors which we now absolutely cherish. It will probably be necessary for me to read the book myself in order to fully appreciate American history through food. Much more interesting than bare facts!

I expected something more like "grandma's cookbook" and was disappointed to find the recipies were for cooking wild animals I never would consider eating. Maybe I just didn't read far enough into it, but I was happy to return the book for my money back.
