"[E]xplores Native American foodways from prehistory to the arrival of Europeans to modern times, encompassing various regions and tribes….Complementing the narrative are a few recipies that describe how the dish was prepared, as well as a chronology, a glossary, and a selected biblipgraphy. Overall, this highly readable and thorough chronicle will be a welcome addition to public, academic, and high school libraries as it fills a gap in Native American and food history." - Library Journal
"The text covers food preparation, preservations, customs and rituals and the diets in various regions. Berzok is careful to emphasize regional and tribal differences in practices." - Reference & Research Book News
"Relatively few titles have been written covering American Indian Foods; much less in depth: this fact makes all the more valuable Linda Berzok's in-depth coverage of the history of American Indian foods and traditions. From how foods were gathered, prepared and stored to changing recipes, newly added foods, and food customs and traditions, American Indian Food is an important coverage." - MBR Bookwatch
