Barbara Walker discovered the "Little House" series when her daughter, Anna, was four and fond of serial stories and kitchen craft. What began as pleasant diversion - recreating frontier food - became serious study for the author after a family trip west by way of some Little House sites. Eight years of intermittent reading, writing, and testing produced The Little House Cookbook.
Anna is now married and has her own little house. Barbara Walker still writes on a variety of subjects from the home she shares with her husband outside Ossining, New York. She regrets the disappearance of lard piecrust, hard cheese, and sausage from her diet but finds solace in making bread from her original sourdough starter.Garth Williams began his work on the pictures for the Little House books by meeting Laura Ingalls Wilder at her home in Missouri, and then he traveled to the sites of all the little houses. His charming art caused Laura to remark that she and her family "live again in these illustrations."
Laurel Liebrecht5 Stars Out Of 5February 20, 2010Laurel LiebrechtI really loved reading this book. If you are fascinated by the pioneer days as I am, you will also love this book. It really makes me appreciate the conveniences we have today. I will probably try a few of the recipes.
Michelle Ann Murphy5 Stars Out Of 5April 21, 2000Michelle Ann MurphyI have enjoyed this book very much. I have longed to do things the "old" way. This book was very helpful. Reading through this cookbook I can see Ma cooking at a campfire. And I can smell thebeans and saltpork. :-) If you would like an in depth look intocooking in the "Old Days" I recommend this book :-) This bookwill not gather dust at my house.
