Yes, we have the cookbook. See it here: Whole Earth Cook Book, 1972, Cadwallader and Ohr, First Edition, First Printing

Whole Earth Cook Book, 1972, Written by Sharon Cadwallader and Judi Ohr. Published by Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston, in association with San Francisco Book Company. Cardboard cover with metal spiral binding. 120 pages.

Recipes tested at the Whole Earth Restaurant on the University of California Campus, Santa Cruz, California. Cookbook was written for cooks “who want to create appetizing meals of high nutritional value by working solely with natural health-giving foods.” Interestingly, this is not a vegetarian cookbook, although it does have a chapter of “Nonmeat Protein Dishes.”

This copy is in excellent vintage condition. There’s a tiny bit of shelf wear on the cover and the remains of a price tag. The pages are all clean and clear. If a cook actually used this cookbook, she was remarkably tidy.
