Drawn from the author's ongoing column in TrueWest Magazine, this cookbook combines myths, nostalgia, and legends with usable, delicious, and fun recipes for use at home or on the trail--all with a western theme. Readers will be surprised to learn the stories behind some of their favorite recipes, and they'll find inspiration from the days of cooking along the trail or in the old iron cook stove in these dishes interpreted for a modern cook's kitchen.
