Southwest Indian Cookbook
Pueblo & Navaho Images, Quotes & Recipes
This richly descriptive book includes recipes and folklore about the preparation of food by Southwest Indians. A bestselling favorite, which delights the palate and the eye, this cookbook ventures beyond mere recipes into the hearts and souls of the Pueblo and Navajo Indians. In these native cultures, the growth of food and its preparation are intimately tied to religious ceremony.
The forty-four full-color photographs depict rituals, dances and ceremonies connected with the planting and gathering of crops, together with scenes of home life showing preparation of food. Accompanying text is drawn from quotations of the author's Pueblo and Navajo friends, illuminating the beliefs and rituals that are inseparable from daily life.
