Stories and Recipes of the Great Depression of the 1930s: This book–with the subtitle More from Your Kitchen Today Nutrition – Economy – Time–deserved a big-time editor and publisher. Compiled by Rita Van Amber and Janet Van Amber Paske, home economist, it was self-published by Van Amber Publishers, Menomonie, Wisconsin. This is the first edition, later printing, published in 1998. This copy is in mint condition, signed by Rita Van Amber. Card board cover with metal comb binding. 306 pages plus index. Absolutely mint condition. Gift quality.
This book is a rich history, a folklorist’s dream of rich, documented stories of the Great Depression, along with recipes created during that time, with stories from many, many people who lived during a dramatic period of America’s history. The Van Ambers were unappreciated scholars.
