Don't expect any real recipes here. This is mostly history, and about a drab time as well. I heard the interview with the author on the radio and that was about all that you needed to know. I suppose if you live in one of the few-remaining bastions of American "traditional" food (watered down versions of the food of other lands, basically), then you might like this book. Otherwise, it's just an addition to your dust-collecting volumes.
