Folks in the Hill Country have traded in their wood-burning stoves for microwave ovens. And even though a freshly killed hen is better eating on the dinner table, they have found sufficient substitutes at the grocery store for their everyday cooking. Adapting to technology, convenience, and even the desire for some new recipes from other regions, Ledford shows how the residents of this part of Tennessee are preparing their favorite dishes in the modern age. The recipes are as genuine as they come, with historic, rustic influences seeping through contemporary ingredients and techniques.
The Civil War is rarely shown through a young southern woman’s perspective. Many of these women were displaced from their homes and lived their lives on the run from Northern shellfire. Sarah Morgan was one of those women. She was only 20 years old when the North took over her hometown of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, but she wrote about her experiences in her diaries with insight and clarity well beyond her years. Paperback.
