Chock full of recipes with step-by-step directions for kids to
follow, this series is a unique way for kids to eat their way
through American history. Many modern historians think the history
of mankind is not to be found solely in the decisions of rulers and
battles won or lost, but in the lives of everyday people. Looking
closely at the environment, economics, eating habits, and favorite
foods of our American forebears teaches us volumes about their
world and ours.
The first people of our continent knew everything about their
natural environment, the seasons, and what grew best. Their great
respect for the land formed their growing, hunting, and rituals
around food. Kids make Indian fry-bread and pumpkin-corn sauce
while learning about the sacredness of corn.
