Food historian Jackie Williams follows pioneers from the earliest days of settlement to the time when railroads brought Pacific Northwest cooks the latest ingredients and implements. Probing diaries, letters, journals, and newspapers, Williams—author of the highly acclaimed Wagon Wheel Kitchens: Food on the Oregon Trail—sheds light on the daily lives of the people who settled the West. Includes dozens of historic photographs, newspaper advertisements and other illustrations, plus recipes for Graham Bread, Vinegar Pie, Oyster Soup, Poverty Pudding and more.
