Nestled near New Orleans, among marshy bogs crawlin’ with gators and accessible only by boat, lies Honey Island Swamp, home of the River People. Dig in to over 100 lip-smackin’ recipes that author Dana Holyfield - Evans has gathered from her fellow swamp natives. With a heap of photos and plenty of storytellin’, Swamp Cookin’ With The River People will introduce you to these friendly folks, but their scrumptious spin on downhome Southern eats is what’ll reel you in! From Mudbug Jambalaya to Charlie’s Tree Rat Stew, or some Smothered Frog Legs with a side of Coonass Coleslaw, you’ll find side dishes to tame even the wildest appetites. And whatever you do, save room for Wanda’s Whiskey Cake! Within the pages of this cookbook, you can work up an appetite when you read the hilarious story about the Reunion of Gator and LouAnn. You will also find out what happens during an annual squirrel hunt festivity, and learn about the Elks Lodge double wedding, and more fun on the bayou. This Swamp Cookin' with the River People cookbook is a new revised printing of the content from the original cookbook by Dana Holyfield that was published in 1999. This cookbook was one of the first "Swamp" themed books that documented a unique way of life in Louisiana's swamplands.
