From the Publisher
"Relatively few titles have been written covering American Indian Foods; much less in depth: this fact makes all the more valuable Linda Berzok's in-depth coverage of the history of American Indian foods and traditions. From how foods were gathered, prepared and stored to changing recipes, newly added foods, and food customs and traditions, American Indian Food is an important coverage."
"The text covers food preparation, preservations, customs and rituals and the diets in various regions. Berzok is careful to emphasize regional and tribal differences in practices."
