Overview

Here is a collection of pure fun—a book of beautiful black-and-white photographs, illustrations, old campfire sayings, songs, and even recipes that capture the romance of the fabled American Wild West. Readers who enjoy outdoor cookouts will relish this anthology’s recipe for cowboy-style pork and beans, whether they prepare it over a campfire or on the kitchen range. A more ambitious recipe for red hot barbecue ribs comes with recommendations for serving with corn-on-the-cob, cornbread, and potato salad. The illustrations range from the nostalgic to the humorous. Typical is a photo of two cowboys on horseback who have nearly disappeared into the distance. The caption is a favorite cowboy’s maxim: “If you’re ridin’ ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it’s still there.” Approximately 60 photos.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Although the recipes in this fun little primer on campfire cooking won't sustain any serious back-to-nature types (where, for example, would you find Worcestershire sauce in the wilderness?), its considerable charm stems from Esson's efforts to retain for contemporary cooks the 19th-century culinary techniques utilized on the open range. Don't sift through these pages to determine what temperature you should preheat the oven to prepare the "Texas Beef Pot Roast," for example, because Esson, a member of the Guild of Food Writers, assumes you'll use an outdoor fire or a grill (although some of his recipes, like the "Turkey Stew," make use of the refrigerator). To make "Biscuits on Sticks," for example, readers should "Divide the dough into about 18 pieces and flatten each out with your hands. Wrap each piece around the tip of a well-scrubbed, thick, green, nontoxic shrub branch that is long enough to use safely on the fire." Recipes for meat dishes, vegetable dishes and soups, snacks and breakfast meals are interspersed with pages devoted to cowboy doggerel and brief discursions covering such topics as the roundup, cowboy songs and stampedes. The chapter on "Breads and Sweet Things" thankfully overlooks the fact that sweets were often hard to find on the trail. This is an entertaining, reasonably authentic guide to replicating the tastes of the Old West. B&w and color illustrations. (June) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
