Description Listen to the Music!

A 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, Teddy Roosevelt, and more.

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.

CD January 3, 2018
Reviewer: Gloria Cisotto from Corpus Christi, TX United States  
The book is filled with great recipes. The only issue I had was that it comes with a CD of music. With streaming music these days owing a CD player has become pretty much obsolete, at least in my house. Will have to figure out a way to listen to the CD without having to urchase a player.
