Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 5 UpA recently discovered recipe collection compiled during the author's life with Almanzo at Rocky Ridge Farm in Mansfield, MI. The 73 recipes are good, honest fare from the 1930s and '40s for everyday and special occasions. At least as interesting as the recipes is the glimpse into Wilder's happy and productive adult life as a farmer, friend, and writer. This large format book is full of black-and-white photographs of her family and friends, and full-color photos of Rocky Ridge Farm, inside and out. The farm pictures tend to be posed and repetitious; but for Wilder fans this volume will illuminate a facet of her life that is new for some readers. Barbara Walker's The Little House Cookbook (HarperCollins, 1979) is aimed at a younger audience and is more closely related to the books that made Wilder famous.Carolyn Jenks, First Parish Unitarian Church, Portland, ME
