Description Listen to the Music!

A romantic getaway to 20 luxurious lodges in America’s wilderness! Home cooks will love these full-flavored recipes created by lodge chefs. The cookbook includes sensational food photos, a description of each lodge, masterpiece paintings, and quotes by Thoreau, John Muir, and Teddy Roosevelt.

On the companion music CD, instrumentalists of the Big Sky Ensemble blend bluegrass, country, western swing, slack key, and jazz. Inspired by traditional American songs, their music is a cross-country journey to enjoy while cooking, dining, and relaxing at home.

Unexpected gift for husband December 29, 2016
Reviewer: Lisa Bracall from Alexandria, VA United States  
I gave this to my husband and he really enjoyed looking at the different lodges and recipes.  I'll be the one making the food, but he'll get to enjoy the results!

Interesting December 13, 2016
Reviewer: SL from Annapolis, MD United States  
It's a gift for my sister.  We're not country music fans and would have preferred a different genre on the CD but we've been to most of the lodges and the recipes are great.
