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!
