American Indian Cooking and Herb Lore Paperback – June 1973 by Thomas B. Underwood (Author, Editor)
This book has it's source in people like Molly Sequoyah. She lives in the Big Cove section of the Qualla Boundary in Western North Carolina, and belongs to the Eastern Band of Cherokees. She represents many of the older Indian women in this country who have a rich and interesting background of food and herb gathering, preparation and use.
Although many of the traditional dishes and formulas have been reduced to recipe form, there are many also that live only in the minds and memories of people like Molly. To her and to many like her we owe gratitude for helping us to make this book possible.
