Overview

Eva McCall told about Lucy Davenport's life in her novels Edge of Heaven and Children of the Mountain. With thirteen children to feed, Lucy used all the foods her family could grow or catch or kill. Like most mountain cooks in the early twentieth century, Lucy’'s cooking directions do not have exact measurements, nor are they kitchen tested. Instead, her granddaughters Eva McCall and Emma Edsall recall how Lucy would bake a bear, preserve beans as leather britches, or bake a scrumptious blackberry pie. Together, they have put in writing their recollections of Lucy’s daily activities in the kitchen, and Lucy’s Recipes for Mountain Living is a warm and light-hearted look at how Lucy kept her large family fed.

    The Good Old Days?

    This is your chance to sit down in Lucy Carpenter's kitchen and see what it was like to feed 17 hungry people two generations ago deep in the Appalachian Mountains. Bring your appetite with you...you're gonna need it! "Lucy's Recipes" is not a cook book per se. Instead, it is an eye-witness account of life on Carpenter Mountain where Lucy raised step children and children. (For Lucy's story, read "Edge of Heaven" and "Children of the Mountain" by Eva McCall.) From cathead biscuits to herbal remedies, you'll feel like you are right there. For some of us, the narrative will evoke memories of plugged watermelon and roast bear. Others will shake their heads at Lucy's ingenuity...and be glad that they live in this century with a grocery store just down the road! This is a fun, makes-your-jaws-leak read!
