Living in the Old West required not only stamina, but innovation. Imagine putting a cake together without fresh supplies, measuring spoons, or a dedicated work area--imagine baking that cake without a thermometer, steady heat, or a timer.
How did those who lived in the Old West do it? The Old West Baking Book shares the baking secrets of Native Americans, ranch house cooks, chuck wagon chefs, and wagon train homemakers, with over one hundred Old West recipes updated and kitchen tested--including Sourdough Biscuits, Spotted Pup Pudding, and Wild Grape-Apple Pie. This is much more than a cookbook, though, for it is filled with dozens of anecdotes and fun facts on how our ancestors were so successful with so little.
