Come 'n Git It! Cookie and His Cowboy Chuck Wagon
In this colorful tale of the food culture of cattle drives in the 1800s, chuckwagon chef Cookie takes young readers along on a rootin'-tootin' adventure. The days start at three o'clock in the morning, when Cookie makes coffee so thick "you could float a horseshoe on it!" With informational sidebars, a historical note, bibliography, and glossary for cowboy food terms such as "calf slobbers" and "swamp seed," this spirited picture book brings the tastes and smells of the Old West alive!
