Synopsis

Gingerbread Tracks and Pine Needle Pasta A Savory Guide to Yellowstone National Park by Melanie Armstrong

Since Yellowstone National Park is staffed by park rangers who continually compare the geology of the world's largest volcano to baking a homemade cherry pie, why not write a cookbook that presents other such savory analogies? Informative and fun, in this book readers will learn how to brew homemade geysers and colorful hot springs, stir up a stew of ingredients only found at Yellowstone, or make the famous huckleberry ice cream generations of tourists have eaten on the porch of the Old Faithful Inn.
