From Library Journal
This handsome volume provides an impressive record of the tribal cooking of the North American Indians. The recipes, organized by region, have been adapted for contemporary kitchens but are as authentic as possible, emphasizing native ingredients over those introduced by the Europeans. The dishes themselves are generally simple, but varied and even exotic--Smoked Salmon Soup, Maple-Basted Broiled Bluefish, Cranberry Fritters. Cox's recipe headnotes are eminently readable mini-histories, filled with information on the various tribes, their histories, and their customs. Jacobs's color photographs of the food feature Indian artifacts, and the page borders and line drawings scattered throughout reproduce tribal motifs and designs. One of the few recent books on the subject, this is a unique work; highly recommended.
