Gathered in one book are the first three tales from the pen of author Jim Christina. His main characters, Hunter and Jolly Goodman, are men of the 1880's. Here's how the author describes them in his debut novel:
In writing The Hunter, I tried to not only show some of the hardships that were endured but the real everyday lives of people in the 1880's. As now, people weren't throwaways. They had purpose in their lives and a sense of right and wrong, they had a sense of purpose and perhaps destiny. Even at fifty eight and seventy three the Hunter and Jolly were men with a zest for life and an ability to accomplish what few men were.
These men came alive for me. They became flesh and blood, bone and gristle. They bled when injured, drank too much and cussed like sailors but they are bound by an oath taken years before and never broken by either one.
I hope you enjoy the story as much as I enjoyed writing it.

From the Publisher:
When Historic Cookery first appeared in 1931 it may have been the earliest cookbook of New Mexican foods to be published, with heirloom recipes from the author's own family and others collected from villagers in northern New Mexico. Fabiola Cabeza de Baca Gilbert's cookbook has been credited with the popularization of cooking with chile that led directly to America's love of native New Mexican foods.
In traditional recipes there were no set rules for the preparation of food. The cook was expected to learn the recipes from her relatives. One of the great contributions of Historic Cookery is that for the first time the non-native cook was given exact amounts and measures for the preparation of New Mexican food.
The author gives complete recipes for chile sauces, corn dishes, meats, cheese, eggs, and vegetables as well as salads, soups, breads, desserts, and beverages.
Fabiola Cabeza de Baca Gilbert was born near Las Vegas, New Mexico in 1894. She was a noted educatior, writer, and home economist.
