Food historian and restaurateur Arnold culled diaries, journals, and other sources to collect recipes of trappers, traders, settlers, various Indian tribes, Mexicans, and soldiers. He presents them here in two ways--the original narrative directions alongside modern adaptations with measurements--along with historical anecdotes and explanation, the sources of the recipes, and selected further readings.

Eating Up The Santa Fe Trail: Recipes And Lore From The Old West combines authentic recipes used by trappers, traders, settlers, Native American tribes, Mexicans, and frontier soldiers with anecdotes and stories drawn from the American West.
