Cowboys and Cookouts: Recipes from the Range
by: Lewis Esson

American Cookbook - Hardcover, April 2003

The cowboy of the American West is one of the most memorable icons of the twentieth century. Cowboys and Cookouts reveals that this legendary figure's life was not always as exciting as the movies would have us believe. The terrain was inhospitable and dangerous, and the young cowhands were poorly paid and overworked. Meal times were eagerly anticipated as the highlight of their day, and the chuck wagon was home on a lonely cattle drive. Although the recipes in this fun little primer on campfire cooking won't sustain any serious back-to-nature types (where, for example, would you find Worcestershire sauce in the wilderness?), its considerable charm stems from Esson's efforts to retain for contemporary cooks the 19th-century culinary techniques utilized on the open range.
