A healthy dose of updated ranch cuisine.
Beaumont Enterprise - Jane McBride
Yee-haw! This one's a keeper. Several things make this book appealing: the recipes are for a specific type of food so it's one you'll pull immediately, it's reasonably small and won't take too much space on the shelf, it's attractive and the stories from cowboys make for good reading.
... this one is worth checking out.

"...hearty trail food adjusted for modern tastes and modern kitchens."
The Kansas City Star - Lauren Chapin
Mama probably didn't want her babies to grow up to be cowboys. Or at least not until she saw how well the contemporary fellas eat.
Beautifully written and photgraphed, this book is as much a delight for the palate as it is for the eyes.
The Oakland Press - Douglas J. Levy
Contemporary Cowboy Cookbook comes in handy providing enough reasons to break out the dutch oven and cast iron skillet and shop for chili peppers, corn, and beans.
