In each of these regions we find communal rites and tribal dishes appropriate to the ecology -- each with its own distinct flavor, smell, and feel. Among the hundreds of recipes featured here are historically accurate renditions of familiar favorites like chili con carne and succotash as well as unusual finds like pine bark stew and pomegranate guacamole. Thoroughly researched, and engagingly written in Fussell's lively and personable style, I Hear America Cooking is not only an important historical document, but also an ode to America's greatest books: young and old, famous and unknown, past and present. It sings the praises of America's gastronomic breadth and diversity, from sea to shining sea.
