"The Old West has never been so appetizing. Tip your Stetson, or your chef's toque, to Sherry Monahan for this mouth-watering look at Western history."--Johnny D. Boggs, six-time Spur Award winner"A delicious combination of Old West history and mouthwatering recipes--fare fit for a frontiersmen or frontierswomen of any era."--Chris Enss, New York Times best-selling author "Sherry Monahan's book gives us rare look at history and food. In an era that did not have gas ranges, propane barbecues, food processors, and refrigeration, it's mind boggling what the old pioneers of the Wild West could cook. Sherry''s research and book does that for us."--James Louie, owner of Huber's Cafe
