Food in California Indian Culture

Edited by Ira Jacknis
Despite the importance and fascination of its subject, this is the first book devoted to the Native cuisines of California. It includes the food-related sections from many hard-to-find sources. Representing all regions of modern California, these detailed descriptions present the full range of Native food from gathering through storage, processing, cooking, and eating, as well as the role of food in myth and ritual. Selections on changes in food customs introduce comtemporary essays and photographs by Native Californians. An introduction by anthropologist Ira Jacknis focuses on cooking and eating. This richly illustrated volume will appeal to everyone with an interest in cooking and the natural world.
