American Indian Cooking & Herb Lore, By J. Ed Sharpe & Thomas B. Underwood

Originally published in 1973, this little book continues to be a source of tasty, simple recipes for hundreds of thousands of cooks.  The authors write;

"This book has it's source in people like Molly (Runningwolfe) Sequoyah. She lives in the Big Cove section of the Qualla Boundary in Western North Carolina, and belongs to the Eastern Band of Cherokees. She respresents many of the older Indian Women in this country who have a rich and interesting background of food and herb gathering, preparation and use. 

Although many of the traditional dishes and formulas have been reduced to recipe form, there are many also that live only in the minds and memories of people like Molly. To her and to many like her we owe our gratitude for helping us make this book possible."
