The Buckskinner’s Cookbook by James A. Hanson Ph.D.


This book is in response to questions about the types of food and old-time recipes available on the frontier. Over the years the author has collected actual recipes or interpolated based on what people said they ate or had available. In this book, the author gives broad coverage to frontier foods. Most recipes are good, some are bad, and all are original, authentic and old. Included with the recipes are illustrations of cooking utensils on exhibit at the Museum of Fur Trade in Chadron, Nebraska.
