Recently, Elizabeth Gilbert unpacked some boxes of family books that had been sitting in her mother's attic for decades. Among the old, dusty hardbacks was a book called At Home on the Range, written by her great-grandmother, Margaret Yardley Potter. As Gilbert writes in her Foreword: 'I jumped up and dashed through the house to find my husband, so I could read parts of it to him: Listen to this! The humor! The insight! The sophistication! Then I followed him around the kitchen while he was making our dinner (lamb shanks), and I continued reading aloud as we ate... By the end of the night there were three of us sitting at that table. Gima had come to join us, and she was wonderful, and I was in love.' The cookbook was far ahead of its time. In it, Potter espouses the importance of farmer's markets and ethnic food (Italian, Jewish and German), derides preservatives and culinary shortcuts and generally celebrates a devotion to epicurean adventures. Potter takes car trips out to Pennsylvania Dutch country to eat pickled pork products, and to the eastern shore of Maryland, where she learns to catch and prepare eels so delicious, she says, they must be 'devoured in a silence almost devout'. Part scholar and part crusader for a more open food conversation than currently existed, it's not hard to see where Elizabeth Gilbert inherited both her love of food and her warm, infectious prose. At Home on the Range is a fascinating, humorous and useful cookbook from the past that is essential for the present day.

America's agricultural lands are disappearing quickly, as are stories of the seemingly average, but often extraordinary 19th-century pioneers who farmed those lands. At Home on the Range: George R. McIntosh, Western Everyman tells one of those stories, unfolding an exciting saga extending from 17th-century Scotland to 20th-century California. The traits that enabled his ancestors to overcome huge hurdles also distinguished George McIntosh (1837-1924). Two years after leaving his Ohio home as a solitary teenager, he became a Colorado gold miner and then served with the North in a pivotal battle of the Civil War. Following the war, he freighted along dangerous routes from Denver to the Missouri River and homesteaded with an ex-slave. His is an Everyman's tale, but also that of an individual who, despite poor health, contentious kin, accidents, and natural disasters, persevered on frontier lands to become a prosperous rancher and family man in northeastern Colorado. After graduating with a Master's Degree in Library Science, Robin worked as a librarian before obtaining a graduate degree in Art History. She taught Art History and Humanities courses at the University of Colorado at Boulder for fifteen years. Robin served as Book Review Editor for Colorado Libraries and has published in both library science and art history. Her translation from the original German of Climate and Society (by Stehr and Von Storch) was published in 2010 by World Scientific. Her interest in local history first found an outlet when she interviewed a number of long-time Boulder County residents as part of an oral history project. Upon retirement from teaching, Robin volunteered as a historical researcher with the Agricultural Heritage Center at the Lohr-McIntosh Farm in Longmont, Colorado. She was inspired to investigate George McIntosh's life after annotating intriguing 19th-century McIntosh family letters. This book grew out of her discoveries.

In Home on the Range Bill Casey traces the history of one of Queensland's oldest organisations, the Queensland Rifle Association. Founded in l861 and supported with military funds until 1960, the Association had 18,000 members at its high point in World War One. Unlike most other clubs, it admitted women as members from 1901. The QRA retains an active membership, maintains some fine rifle ranges and has members prominent in national and international competitions.
From dime novels to Wild West movies, from cowboy heroes to tribal villains, from masculine mystique to female virtue: the 19th-century American West has captured both popular imagination and academic interest for over a century. Despite this persistent attention, the region's rich, varied and plentiful material culture has received only selective consideration, leaving many aspects of everyday trans-Mississippi life untold. This book, for the very first time, brings together a large number of historic photographs, drawings, manuscript diaries and needlework projects from archives across the United States. Its multidisciplinary analysis considers how migrants and settlers used their architecture, spatial practice, clothes and diet to make themselves at home in unfamiliar surroundings. In the process it deconstructs stereotypes which have clung to the 19th-century western spaces and people for decades.
