Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0865410429, Paperback)

A classic, first published by Filter Press in 1973 and updated in this 1998 edition. The book contains both aboriginal and modern recipes from many southwest tribes including Apache, Navajo, Papago, and Pima. There are two excellent recipes for Navajo Fry Bread.

“Corn, squash, beans and pumpkin are integral parts of Southwest Indian ritual and religion. These foods were prominent in ancient legend and have been passed down through the generations from unrecorded time to the present. Their form is found in sacred paintings; special songs are sung as the seeds are planted; and all who have experienced the joyful Corn Dance know the intimacy, harmony, and intangible bond between Mother Earth and her children.

Beneath the sands of centuries—in ancient cave dwellings, and in long-abandoned mesa-top and canyon villages—archeologists have found seeds of these staples stored in baskets and pottery jars by peoples who were ancient when Europe was young.

Almost every recipe in this book includes at least one of these life staples of the Southwest.”
—From the Introduction
