Eat Your Way Through the USA Spiral-bound – January 1, 2005
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

About the Author
Loree' Pettit is a wife and homeschooling mother to three children. Her background as a school teacher and administrator helped her to see the value in adapting traditional teaching methods for schooling at home. She developed a love for geography as a child traveling throughout the United States and Europe with her family. In 2001, she translated that interest into a geography-based unit study for her own children. That unit study went into publication the following year as Galloping the Globe. Eat Your Way Through The USA and Cantering the Country soon followed.
When she is not writing, or involved with the many details of teaching her own chidden, Loree' presents workshops at homeschool conferences across the country. There, she helps parent realize that home schooling is more than bringing traditional teaching methods into the home. Her heart is to help parents discover the joys of learning together as a family.

The recipes are fairly simple and use common ingredients, so for some family meal ideas it works. We have found a couple recipes we enjoyed. Although we also found several to be very bland and in need of some spice.
It is evident that the author is from the south and she does a nice job explaining her choices of southern cuisine. She does not do a good job explaining they whys of food from other regions of the country (other than the obvious, like Idaho is the potato capital and all the recipes use potatoes.)
The directions are sometimes lacking, especially on the southern dishes (perhaps she is so familiar with them that she thinks everyone will know what she means?) I've been able to figure out how to make everything we've done so far (Alaska through Georgia), but have wondered at things like "boil chicken". For how long? Do I want it falling apart or just done? I've never boiled chicken before. Boiled peanuts "may be eaten hot or cold"--but it doesn't say to shell them (which is somewhat obvious), or if it's normal for southerners to just eat them plain or in things...I want more information! I definitely couldn't give the book to my kids and expect them to figure everything out.
I've looked online at the book "The United States Cookbook: Fabulous Foods and Fascinating Facts From All 50 States" and it appears to be much more well put together and has cooking information that is explicit enough for kids to make some of the recipes. Although I'll finish "Eat Your Way Through the USA", and it has had good recipes, I wouldn't recommend it to others. Try another option.
