The creators of this cookbook promise the recipes are fun and easy. Western artwork featured throughout the book is by artist Robert E. Kerby. In the foreword, “The western way of life is a part of our American heritage, and we are delighted to share with you these classic recipes and quality western artwork.”
Here’s a hint at some of the recipe titles. Canon City Apple Cider, Trail Driver’s Tea Cooler, Chuckhole Charlie’s Chicken Soup, Spanish Squash, Chisholm Trail Muffins, Cactus Jack’s Candy. Or maybe you want to try the Sand Hills Smothered Grouse or Velvet Tail Rattlesnake, which has us wondering if we’ll be Scared Prairie Chicken (yes, that recipe is in this book too!)
This book even has an Index of Recipes, Pantry Basics, Napkin Folding and many more tips.
About Bob Kerby and his western world. He has spent his lifetime capturing the action of the American West. There’s photos of him on his first pony at age 8 in Colorado Springs, and bronc riding in Trinidad, Colorado in 1950. He left his home in Colorado when he was 17, to go work on large cattle ranches in northern New Mexico. This also sparked his romance for the west and to create authentic artwork. Fast forward to June 2000, and there’s a photo of Kerby roping in Denver, Colorado, on his 71st birthday. More about this artist is included in this book. (Note: Kerby died at age 87 in 2016, but his family continues his western legacy).
5 1/2 by 8 1/2 inches, 130 pages plus.
