For year's Mary Bohlen has traveled to living history homes and parks to demonstrate open hearth cooking. Although the book begins with Daniel Boone's wife, Rebecca, it moves south from there with beautiful pictures of mostly North Carolina living history sites and recipes appropriate to each. She begins with meaningful tips on cooking in fireplaces and ends with recipes that can easily be made even on a modern stove. Mary Bohlen lives in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
