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!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
