Blot provides a fascinating and entertaining look at our foods and eating habits in the late 1800s and shows us how our world has changed. Habits normal in his time -- using rainwater or lake water for cooking -- are unthinkable today. The items in his chart for cooking meat were particularly interesting, including wild boar, buffalo, Robin, Meadow Lark, and Blackbird. Anyone interested in food, cuisine, and history should enjoy this work from a true gastronome!
