Here are over 100 unique recipes of classic pioneer food – dishes Laura Ingalls Wilder and her family shared throughout their lives on the frontier. Even more than a cookbook, this collection is a social history of frontier life. For the Ingallses, and many pioneers, feeding the family was a task that involved everyone. Pa hunted and farmed for food, Ma prepared and preserved it, and the children helped in both activities. This book celebrates the rich communion of a pioneer family working, cooking, and eating together, in a time when putting food on the table meant more than just a meal – it meant survival. With illustrations by Garth Williams.
